The Chris Finnerty High Intensity Hockey School runs very high tempo skills sessions and clinics/camps in the City of Ottawa and in the Ottawa Valley in Arnprior. We focus exclusively on INDIVIDUAL skill development and not team drills. We do not waste time on the ice, as we try to keep our students moving as much as possible. Regardless, if you play NCAA, OHL, AAA, or house league, our unique and challenging drills can help you reach your potential.
" I recommend Chris' clinics to boys and girls of all ages, who are serious about improving their on-ice skills."
Luke Richardson, 21 Year NHL Veteran
Many NHL players have skated with us, including Steve Yzerman, Matthew Barnaby, Daniel Brière, Mike Eastwood, Jason York, Luke Richardson, Randy Robitaille, Todd White, Zach Bogosian, Kent Manderville, Gino Odjick, Peter Chiarelli ( GM of Edmonton Oilers), Bruce Cassidy (Head Coach of Boston Bruins), Jim Kyte, Doug Derraugh ( Head coach of Cornell University Women's Hockey team and former national coach of Team Canada) and many more former students of Chris Finnerty have advanced to various levels of collegiate and professional hockey.
We try to get our players outside of their comfort zone. We work on INDIVIDUAL SKILLS EXCLUSIVELY. We do lots of HIGHTEMPO STICK HANDLING, POWER SKATING AND EDGE WORK drills where we try to improve foot and stick speed, agility, core, wrist and arm strength through various innovative drills and exercises. We do more drills in one session, than 99% of our students are exposed to in their lifetime.
