Rapid's EHT program is for highly motivated players who desire to play at an elite level and understand the training required to get there. Players selected to participate in this program will go through 6 weeks of on and off ice training with Rapid's experienced group of instructors who know about the teaching process and communicating with young dedicated athletes. Our skills-oriented curriculum has helped players reach the highest levels of hockey at every age group, from novice to pro. In addition to training, players will also participate in weekly nutritional classes, yoga sessions and video reviews.
We also bring in guest speakers and instructors from European and North America teams, including the NHL, Division I Colleges and Universities, Junior Major and US Prep Schools. Past guests have included NHLers Marco Scandella of the Minnesota Wild and Mark Barberio of the Tampa Bay Lightning, AHL All Star and European Pro Max Noreau, Assistant Coach Kevin Patrick from the University of Vermont, Denver University Coach Jim Montgomery and Junior Major Coach Ron Choules of the Acadian Bathurst Titans, to name a few.
The EHT program will group players based on their age and ability starting at the PeeWee level.
