Hockey IQ Program

Hockey IQ : Play With Purpose

Motor City Hockey offers an elite experience to players of all levels. Through real game analysis, Motor City Hockey produces player development training that focuses on individual and team positional concepts. Motor City Hockey specializes in teaching all learning styles to find the best match for your son/daughter.


At the youth level often times players are found out of position.  A player out of position does not receive the same opportunities in a game setting to score goals, make plays etc. Often times individual players are not taught the positioning instruction they need due to the amount of players on a team. Hockey IQ breaks down game film and more in an environment that a player finds challenging and fun. Players that have a better understanding of the game will have more fun as they will have more success while on the ice. Players in the Hockey IQ program will receive detailed instruction at a pace that will help them develop better hockey sense.
