Who We Are


We created Explosive Hockey Development to provide an alternative hockey program to those currently offered within our community.  

Through our high energy programs, we are setting out to provide a further enhanced program for participants to engage in solid foundational training and development  – on and off the ice.  

Our performance coach is a fully certified skating instructor specializing in the biomechanics of skating for both overall speed as well as in tight spaces.  

Edge work is critical to the development of all players.  We use on ice training tools to provide a comprehensive training program tailored to each group.
