Next Level Hockey Chosen to Run the Twisters TPHS Program
Submitted By Carolyn Tegelaar on Mon 08 27, 18
We are happy to announce that Next Level Hockey School has been selected to run the Twisters Rep level TPHS program and will also be holding various skill development sessions throughout the year for Houseleague and DS level players!

Co-Owners, Ashley Riggs and David Volpe are no strangers to the Twisters organization and have been involved in many of our programs including Tyke level training and Fundamentals. They have also worked individually with many of our Rep teams over the years providing additional training. David and Ashley will also be joined on the ice by Deron Cousins and will be working closely to further build our TPHS program and advance the skill level of all Twisters players. Bio’s for all three individuals are below for your information and interest.

In addition to this, we are also happy to announce that during the upcoming season we will be running a separate TPHS training program for goalies. This will be led by Dahan Hockey (www.dahanhockey.ca/about). During the 2017-2018 season, Dahan was involved with TPHS training however it was during the program for skaters. During the upcoming season, the Twisters Goalie TPHS will be held separately with all goalies from Novice through Peewee getting specific goaltending training. This additional training will further develop the amazing depth and skill level of the goaltenders within the Twisters organization.
