Private lessons are a “for sure” way to improve a players skills due to the close attention that the instructor gets to see, analyze, and give feedback directly to your player. We conduct private lessons all year.
Our fall/winter/spring private lessons are instructed by Scott Brandes. Scott trains in the mornings from 6am-8am at Creve Coeur Rink on Mondays and at the Maryville Ice rink in Chesterfield on other mornings each week. These lessons are conducted on ice that allows Scott to work with pucks as well as skating. Scott mornings are very full at this time, but he will have openings due to cancellations. Please let us know if you are interested in Power Skating or Stick & Puck lessons in the mornings, and we will add you to a “Sub List” for those morning times.
Scott is usually available during the day (9am-2pm) most week days. During these hours, Scott has time to train adults, early childhood players, home schooled players, and players with late school starts, half days of school, and days off school. Training with pucks is possible on these day time lessons as well. Let us know if you have a player that is available during the day, and we will find some time. Please inquire about specific dates when your player has day times available due to these situations. Common holidays are hard to train on due to the massive crowds at the rinks. These holidays are filled at the instructors discretion.
Scott also teaches five days a week after school at Webster Groves Rink, Brentwood Rink and Creve Coeur Rink. Power Skating instruction is offered at these lessons after school. Scott has no lesson times available after 3:00pm at this time. Let us know if you have a situation that allows your player to attend a lesson in the very early afternoons. Scott could do a 2:45pm lesson on Mondays at Brentwood Rink for 30min, a 3:00pm Tuesday lesson at Webster Groves Rink for 30min, or a 2:15pm lesson Wednesdays at Brentwood Rink for 30min. I know that those times are tough to make, due to school and work. We are sorry there is not more available at this time after school.
