Many youth hockey training programs will teach you how to skate, shoot, pass and stickhandle. Very few of these programs actually develop hockey players. The reason is twofold. First, the player develops these individual skills but fails to recognize how to correctly utilize them in a game situation.
Second, their play without the puck (getting open for a pass, being ready to receive a pass, how to read off a teammate, how to defend, how to react from a change of possession, etc.) is poor. National Elite Hockey Development keys on these two aspects, along with proper technique of individual skills. Mix in some hard work and discipline and it is easy to see why we separate ourselves from the pack.
