“First a little about my philosophy and what I do. I work with skaters from beginners to AAA players, junior to the NHL. I believe wholeheartedly that skating in the basic building block for all skills and success at all levels. I have used my years of experience as a Kinesiology major, AAA and Junior hockey coach, development instructor and researcher to take my learning and create a proven skating program.”

THT provides a safe, fun, yet highly challenging learning environment for athletes of all levels; house league to AAA, junior to pro. Our technical instruction is scientifically researched and proven so we guarantee results.

THT Instructors teach, demonstrate and model the skill, have the athlete perform the skill, and then provide specific feedback for improvement. Through repetition, the player will develop accurate and correct muscle memory.

Below is a condensed list of Dave Tait’s Qualifications.

  • THT HOCKEY Development – Director of Player Development & Head Instructor
