Boris and Austin Matthews
AP HOCKEY is excited for the opportunity to host International skating and skills instructor BORIS DOROZHENKO and Next Generation Hockey for the 3rd summer in a row. Boris is the #1 skating coach in the hockey world today. He is in high demand running week long camps in only a handful of cities across the United States. We are lucky to have the chance to learn from him here in St. Louis Park, MN. Boris has worked with players from all over the world, including North America, Europe, Ukraine, Russia, Sweden, and Switzerland. His focused and disciplined approach helps his students dramatically improve their abilities in the shortest time possible.
His system breaks down the skills of skating into core elements and provides players with a deeper appreciation of these components. Players will improve their confidence through superior edge control, improved balance, agility, and strength. Each player's gained knowledge of skating and how it relates to their success is unparalleled.
Boris' unique approach and teaching methods originate from his own hockey roots as part of the Russian and Eastern European hockey tradition and is now available through his Innovative Hockey Schools.
