On Thursday players
from the Coventry Blaze Academy were joined on the ice by several members of
the Elite Coventry Blaze team to assist in a bumper training session.
The 90 minute
training session saw in excess of 40 players from the academy's U13A, U15 and
U18B teams take to the ice with some of their favourite players.
Academy Head Coach,
Sean Alderson, who lead the session split the ice up into six training stations
and each station was supported by an academy coach and one of the Elite
Coventry Blaze players including a dedicated N/M station ran by Renny Marr.
through each of the various stations, focusing on skill development for an hour,
the academy players got to spend the last half an hour of the session playing
small area games such as handball, ringette and of course hockey. With the
Elite Coventry Blaze players joining in each of the various games this proved
to be a great way to end the session.
The Coventry Blaze
Academy would like to say a big thank you to Elite Coventry Blaze players Cale
Tanaka, David Clements, Josh Godfrey, Drew Fisher, Jim Jorgensen and Renny Marr
who helped to make it a successful training session. Thanks also to James Pease
who helped to organise the event.
