Coaching & Private Lessons

The Greater Seattle Hockey League partners with various coaches that provide coaching to teams within the league. In addition, many of these coaches offer private, one-on-one lessons to individual players that are looking to further develop their personal hockey and skating skills. There are also organizations within the greater Seattle area that provide group-based lessons.

Seattle Thunderbirds Skills Camp

The Seattle Thunderbirds host an annual Skills Camp in late summer focusing on the areas of shooting, scoring and power skating. These three essential parts of every players' game are honed in and developed by current and former T-Birds coaches and players.

Each year, the camps are generally 1 1/2 hours per day, committed and motivated to teaching and improving the skills of everyone in attendance throughout the week.

All sessions for the Seattle Thunderbirds Skills Camp take place at the accesso ShoWare Center, home of the 2017 Western Hockey League Champions, the Seattle Thunderbirds. Participants utilize the Seattle Thunderbirds locker room throughout the camp.
