De Pere Youth Hockey is proud to offer programs for youth skaters ages 4 - 18. De Pere Youth Hockey Association serves the school districts of East De Pere, West De Pere, Denmark. and the surrounding communities. Started in 1972, our program aims to develop the skills, sportsmanship and leadership that allows players to reach their full potential.
This program is designed for individual skill development, and is focused towards proper edgework, power skating, and read and reaction hockey habits. Developed from Czech hockey legend Ludek Bukac, this innovative training method has proven to work at all levels of hockey, from Introduction to Professional. Sessions will be coached by J.P. Coppo, Mason Baptista and other college level coaches and players. Below is the method of the Bukac Camps. Please review.
The Bukač Hockey School is the longest running school in the Czech Republik. The school was founded on the concept of developing individual technique and technical skills. Since 1991 the focus has been and will continue to be to provide leading edge, top quality hockey instruction in a positive, supportive environment combining to make an enjoyable camp experience.
Our goal is to treat each player as an individual and to encourage the development and refinement of their potential hockey skills. Therefore we developed VGT training. The Variable Goals Training Model - VGT - Create Game-like Conditions and Competitive Challenge. For the last 10 years now we have been perfecting a new and innovative way to challenge young hockey players to stimulate their read and reaction skills and puck handling creativity under authentic game-like conditions.
