Pro Ambitions returns to Newington Arena

Published by:


Pro Ambitions Battle Camp returning to Newington Arena July 17-21.  Jeff Serowik, created and trademarked this system of training where skill development takes place in a game situational battle in small area drills. The goal is to develop a player’s skill and hockey IQ through game situational battles . Every drill incorporates a skill, skating and game theory element while engaging in a game situational battle. At the Battle Camp players will go through a battery of drills that all introduce a second puck. After the initial battle is won or lost, the players focus on gap control and go back in for a second battle. This curriculum has created its own niche in the industry. Is now imitated by many. It has been endorsed by the Boston Bruins, and countless NHL players.
