GPS Hockey School

What is GPS School?

GPS School is a weekly regimented training program for aspiring young hockey players to master their hockey skills in a focused and intense environment. Sessions will meet on Wednesday afternoons for one hour at Robert Crown in Evanston. The small number of students accepted, combined with the repetition and building of skills, provides an ideal environment for not only learning new skills but building on the skills acquired each week. GPS School is available for one or two terms through the fall and early winter of 2019.
