Our Program


Rousseau's Hockey Clinic offers hockey players of all ages the opportunity to develop fundamental hockey skills. Our program is progressive, offering instruction in Power Skating, Passing and Puck Handling, and Advanced Team skills.

We have earned a reputation as the state's most notable power skating Instructors. It is our belief that good hockey skills start with great skating skills. Since our first clinic in 1986, our program has evolved and develops the complete hockey player including goaltenders.

Our core youth program consists of Spring and Summer

clinics that extend over several weeks. Our Spring clinics

begin in mid April and run for 10 weeks June and our

Summer clinics begin in July and run for 7 weeks.

We also offer Adult hockey clinics and the Early Spring

and Fall.  We offer both Basic Skill and Game Skills clinic. 


All of our clinics follow a proven format of a one hour

practice session followed by a one hour controlled

scrimmage.  This format allow us not only to offer

technical skating, puck control, and passing instruction

but to also provide instruction in game situations. 


Developing as a hockey player requires a long term

commitment to training including physical conditioning

and rest. Unique in its fundamental philosophy, the

success of Rousseau's Hockey Clinic has consistently been

proven.  It is our belief that players gain more when practicing

over a longer period of time.  We are committed to offering

programs that extend through a number of weeks.  As a

result of the constant repetition of task specific training

throughout these extended sessions, each player has ample

time to absorb concepts and to attain mastery over new skills. 


Our practices are intense and our students and staff work

very hard. Our program has been proven not only to

increase a players intensity but to also improve his or her

confidence as we encourage them to carry the puck and

develop on ice creativity.

In the Fall we offer "Training Camp" clinics designed to

help players improve their conditioning and sharpen their

hockey skills in preparation for the upcoming season. 

These programs usually include five to seven hours of ice time where we review and practice proper skating, puck handling, and passing skills in an intense practice setting.  We also introduce "Small Game Situation" drills designed to improve on-ice creativity and to add a little fun.

In addition to conducting our own Fall "Training Camp" clinics, we are also available for private Fall pre-season programs.  These private programs include "Training

Camps", Power Skating Clinics, Checking Clinics, and Goaltender Clinics.  Over the years, we have conducted private programs for Casco Bay Youth Hockey, Maine Coast Youth Hockey, Brunswick High School Girls hockey team, Lewiston Area Youth Hockey, Mid-Coast Youth Hockey, Waterville Youth Hockey, Gorham Youth Hockey, Scarborough Middle School, the Skowhegan high school and Lawrence high school Varsity Hockey teams and Auburn Youth Hockey.


Finally, we are available for Coaches' Clinics and to conduct Select Team "Try-Outs.  Our programs have a reputation for being intense and challenging and we provide sessions that put prospective players in unique game situation that allow them to highlight their talents.
