We are a team of passionate, NCAA experienced coaches dedicated to growing the game of hockey in Connecticut. Since 2002, we have provided our players with the highest level of skill development based on a simple philosophy: Love The Game.
Our players leave every training session exhausted and hungry for the next one. We create an environment that forces you to focus in the midst of multi-tasking chaos. This elevates your hockey IQ and strengthens your skills. Technique + Fatigue = Improvement. There is no downtime at IPH. You're always moving, learning, and growing. If you aren't drenched in sweat with a smile on your face, then you're wasting your time. You won't find us selling "Power Skating" or "Stick Handling" specials. Why? Because every single IPH drill demands those (and a dozen other) skills. Hockey is an integrative sport that can't be taught piecemeal. IPH players are successful because they are taught on a multi-dimensional level that builds a true hockey player.
"Hands-down the best skating instruction in Connecticut. IPH will help you improve on edge work, stick-handling, putting the puck in the back of the net, speed, hands...whatever your weakness is, IPH will not only improve it but will turn that weakness into a major strength." - Dante Tomassini Assumption College 2017-2018 NE10 Defenseman of the Year
