“I’m not sure I’ve met a coach who has analysed skating mechanics to the extent that Andrei has,” said Wilbur. “While it’s arguably the most important skill in hockey, it’s also likely the most misunderstood from a technical perspective. Andrei has a lot to offer. His presentation is can’t miss.”

We’re very excited to have both Anton Rudgard & Andrei Lavrov presenting during the Global Skills Showcase. This event is exclusive to members of The Coaches Site; Become a member today to get FREE access to this coaching masterclass!
