YFH Partners With Many of the Respected & Experienced Professional Ice Hockey Trainers in the Pittsburgh Area
We believe that young hockey players really don’t care what you know, until they know how much you care. While we realize that we can influence the attitudes and habits of our students both on and off the ice, we try to make this influence a very positive one. We teach all of our skills in progressive steps and put great emphasis on positive reinforcement.
Our best attribute is the way we utilize every inch of the ice and always keep the players moving. There are no waiting in lines, as our drills are designed to keep the players skating, thinking, and working, while having fun. At the IHC, we have found that practice does not make perfect; instead it is “Perfect Practice Makes Perfect”. That is why we insist that all of our students perform each drill with perfect technique.
