The Fuel hockey program is for high-level players aged 13 to 15 to develop the leadership and hockey skills needed to advance to the next level.
2022 application process will begin on November 15, 2021.
Prepared Players Reach the Next Level
Players work on mobility, technique, and shot speed, so they become accurate shooters.
Overspeed, efficiency, power, and edgework, help our players become faster on the ice.
Proper conditioning at this age builds faster, more stable, and stronger players with fewer injuries.
Now is a Critical Time for Player Development
Looking back, you’ve invested a lot of time and energy into your hockey player’s development. From hiring shooting coaches to skating coaches, you’ve done everything you can to support your child.
So far, everything has worked, but now your player is at an age and development level where ad hoc or as-needed training efforts will not accelerate their development. In fact, it may hinder it, causing them to feel left behind or that they may not make the team.
It was at this age when my training shifted from working with individual skill coaches to participating in a more comprehensive program like Fuel. The Fuel program accelerated my development into a higher-level player, and I believe it’s the reason I was able to play professionally.
What Makes the Fuel Program Different?
Your hockey player is entering a stage in their development, where being good at “one thing” will only take them so far. There are fewer teams available, and coaches become more selective. Fuel is a comprehensive program that pulls together all of the necessary hockey skills needed to become the well-rounded player, coaches need on their team.
Your player will have the opportunity to work with the best speed training coaches available.
Players participate in specifically tailored small group sessions with the best coaches in the city.
Our coaches help our players become stronger and faster using proper weight lifting techniques.
Proper stride helps players have more time with the puck so they can make plays and score more goals.
Players work on stamina to become as good at the end of the game as they are at the beginning.
At Popovic Hockey, we work with our players to develop the confidence and mindset of high-level players.

What Our Parents are Saying
What will my player learn during the Fuel program?
At this level, players face different challenges then they have in the past. Unfortunately, most hockey programs for this age group continue to focus on basic skills rather than focusing on the growth of the player.
Having observed the challenges many elite players face when they reach this level, Fuel has one goal: make your player faster, stronger, and mentally prepared for the challenges ahead.
Fuel is NOT another skills camp. It’s an ice hockey training program for the next generation of players.
If your player is going to chase their dream, they need to prepare wisely. Our players launch from Fuel physically and mentally prepared for the next level, because they train like they are already there.
