Private training is the most advantageous form of training for rapid skill acquisition. Detection and correction is immediate and specific to your athlete. Your individual and focused attention will translate to results that are applicable to your game instantly.
30-minute private training has your choice of 1 or 2 players participating with Coach Al. The booking client is responsible for the full registration but can invite a 2nd player at their discretion. Training may be half-ice when necessary as 2 programs may be occurring simultaneously.
