It's Time to Get Serious about Hockey!

Are you ready to take your game to the next level? If you're really serious about hockey then CDHP's PPD (Personal Player Development Program) is for you. CDHP's PPD is 100% "hockey specific". It's designed for serious players looking to get past developmental roadblocks in their overall game. This personalized program offers all serious players from beginners to aspiring professionals - training like the pros with professional hockey players.

We have revised our Personal Player Development Program (PPD © ) prices and availability to better suit your needs. We are currently scheduling for the winter and spring months.

These programs range from three (3) to fifteen (15) days. We are also offering a new month-long training program consisting of daily on-ice skill development and strength enhancement. This particular program has a boarding option available.

Remember, all PPD's can take place with 1-on-1, 2-on-1 or 3-on-1 player/instructor ratios. The PPD Program is designed for players who are in search of consistent personalized training with CDHP Professional Trainers. The benefits from our personalized instruction are unmatched.

PPD's Will Be Available At All Of Our Summer Programs

We began offering personalized instruction at the conclusion of the day last year and received an overwhelming amount of positive feedback. As a result, we now offer the opportunity for our students to receive personalized instruction each day at any of our summer programs. Players opting for PPD sessions to compliment their group instruction benefit from personalized instruction on specific skill sets.

At each program throughout the summer CDHP will offer three areas of skills focus.

  • Goal Scoring/Puck Handling
  • Defensive
  • Checking

Cavanagh's has always believed in the importance of powerskating. This is why we incorporate powerskating into every Personal Player Development Session.

PPD's Focused Program Includes a Proven Checklist for Success

Designed to help each player reach their potential, it includes a systematic method of instruction that clearly identifies a player's weaknesses and inefficient habits. Those individual tendencies become the focal point that CDHP isolates by pushing that player to break his or her "comfort zone." The result: the player relearns through proper coaching techniques and repetition to develop a stride that's more efficient and more powerful, incorporating greater agility with better balance.

Personal Instruction Enhances Your Development

We're focused on your development and prepared to provide you the intensive personal training that's required and expected for serious hockey players who have set lofty goals. Our systematic and innovative training format is unparalleled and in a class by itself. CDHP's PPD is specifically designed for today's serious athletes that are focused on hockey. Personalized instruction works because at certain points in player development individual instruction greatly enhances overall progress. In addition, one-on-one training enables players to get past sticking points in their development that can hinder progress and lead to frustration.

Charting Your Growth and Development

CDHP's Personal Player Development Program (PPD) includes a detailed analysis of your strengths and weaknesses that include all aspects of hockey from skating and skills to strength and balance. This personal evaluation is reviewed after every session to determine the progress you've achieved and the next goal for you to accomplish. Once you participate in CDHP's PPD, your chart is on file for our next program in your personal development.

Train with the Pro's

Each PPD session will include one and one-half hours on the ice and a half-hour off the ice with our extremely organized and highly trained staff of professional hockey players featuring 100% hockey specific training. You'll train like a professional with our professional instructors (1-on-1, 2-on-1 or 3-on-1).

PPD Takes You to the Next Level

Over the course of time, CDHP will use your player development chart to support our recommendation to team or university coaching staffs. With your dedication to hard work and our professional instruction, we'll strive to provide you opportunities to reach your goals.
