When we rolled out the Global Skills Showcase earlier this year, we weren’t kidding about the global part.
Gary Tan, founder of the G10 Ice Hockey Academy, made his presentation all the way from Malaysia. A skills coach who has learned and taught all over Asia and North America, Tan dug into the fundamentals of passing and receiving.
Tan began his presentation by asking what the most important skill is to teach hockey players, after skating. His answer may surprise you.
“Everything starts with the puck on your stick. In order for you to pass, stick-handle, or shoot, you must first receive the puck… you have to receive the puck to make a play.”
