Adam Oates is widely regarded as having one of the sharpest hockey minds in the world.  The foundation of Adam’s Hall of Fame career was an inner feel of the details, flow and lanes within the game coupled with a burning desire to always get better. He carried these attributes into his career as an NHL coach, during which time he studied team systems and player tendencies and gained an even deeper understanding of the details within the game.

As a result of his incredible journey as a player, coach and student of the game, Adam’s eye is able to identify the nuances within a player’s movements, skill set and thought process that are holding that player back from reaching the next level.  Adam and his team then get to work on the ice and through video analysis, correct those flaws and improve the player’s movements, skills and thought process on the ice.  The objective is to create a player who will be safer on the ice, be able to execute more plays  and have an advanced “Hockey IQ”.  

"Safety is my biggest concern in a player's game.  When I first speak with a player, I ask him to send me some game tapes. The first thing I’m looking for is does he ever put himself at risk and, if so, why? From there I form a plan based on what the player is doing well and what needs to be worked on.  I then speak with the player and we discuss a plan of attack that's not a band-aid, it’s real improvement.  So do we work on skills, YES! But I prefer to say that we’re improving your IQ and making you an all-round better player".

At Oates Sports Group, we have one mission: to make our players better.  Once you become a member of our team, you become part of the family and we do whatever we can to help you improve and navigate your way through the challenging and sometimes irrational world of high-level hockey.  

PLAYER ASSESSMENT

 

We offer an initial consultation with Adam which includes Adam reviewing some of your game footage and providing preliminary advice to you about your strengths and weaknesses and the areas that you should focus on to improve your game.  This can be combined with a two or three day session with Adam or a member of his team.  

INDIVIDUAL SKILL DEVELOPMENT

Adam and his team will design a custom program for you which will include on-ice instruction, video analysis and mentoring with a view to improving your movements, skills and, ultimately, your Hockey IQ.

 

GROUP SESSIONS/SEMINARS

Adam and his team will work with your small group or team to improve individual skills or team systems.  This can be done on the ice, in the classroom or a combination of the two. Regardless of what level your team is at, there's always room for improvement!

EXCITEMENT AT THE RINK 7/2018

Adam Oates showed up at the rink with some NHLers you might be familiar with to work on their summer conditioning. The NHLers were kind enough to pose for some pictures with the kids and sign autographs.
