ABOUT EVOLUTION HOCKEY
a means of gradual, progressive change or development;
a process of formation or growth
“The name Evolution was chosen because our programs embody this concept – always improving, always evolving.”
At Evolution Hockey, we pride ourselves on being more than just another hockey development company. Licensed by Hockey Canada, we are driven by a love for the game, a profound care for our young athletes, and a steadfast commitment to reshaping the future of hockey training for game-transferable skills.
OUR PHILOSOPHY: GAME CONTEXT OVER ISOLATED DRILLS
Today’s young athletes, both on and off the ice, often find themselves in a world that constantly tells them what to do. From school classrooms to traditional hockey camps, their decisions and actions are dictated by many of their teachers and coaches. Yet, when game time arrives, we expect them to seamlessly navigate situations they’ve seldom encountered. At Evolution Hockey, we’ve flipped this outdated model on its head and designed our program to benefit the players and goaltenders.
Our sessions aren’t about mindlessly repeating isolated skills. Instead, we immerse players and goaltenders in game-relevant environments that challenge their creativity and decision-making. We believe that skills should most often be in relation to the context, not executed in isolation because someone told them to.
THE TRUE GOAL: DEVELOPING INTELLIGENT PERFORMERS
We understand the ultimate objective: it’s not about excelling at a hockey camp; it’s about mastering the game of hockey. To this end, we foster a training environment that allows our players to explore, innovate, self-correct, and most crucially, find functional solutions that resonate with their unique playing style. If your goal is to go to Hockey camp, we probably aren’t the right program for you. If your goal is to get better at Hockey, you’ve come to the right place.
THE MULTISPORT ADVANTAGE
We don’t just limit our perspective to the ice. Recognizing the immense benefits of cross-training, we encourage our athletes to indulge in a spectrum of sports. This holistic approach ensures they amass a diverse skill set, which can be seamlessly transferred to elevate their hockey performance. Depending on the time of year, we take care of providing and scheduling a number of fantastic donor sports to Hockey for you.
EMBRACING THE CHAOS
We’re here to lead, innovate, and pave the way for progressive hockey training. If you’re expecting every training session to appear neat and streamlined, prepare for a delightful surprise! We embrace the ‘mess’ during our sessions because therein lies authentic learning and retention. If a drill looks overly polished, it’s designed for the coach, not the player. Our commitment lies in not having our athletes repeat specific solutions but to continually engage in the process of problem-solving.
