Vancouver Thunderbirds Hockey - Skate.Shoot. Soar.

Skills with Vancouver Thunderbirds' Mike Todd 

Starting in the 2017-18 season, Mike Todd has taken on the new role of Director of Player and Coach Development focused specifically for the Recreational Division. He will be implementing a few changes in the program while maintaining all of the strengths previously known.

Why attend?

These sessions will provide our players the opportunity to have access to additional skill development sessions at no extra charge! If you are a player that wants to improve throughout the season at a faster pace, these sessions are a must for you. Coaches are encouraged to attend for a professional development opportunity. At the sessions, you can expect:

  • improved skills which will increase your enjoyment of playing the game
  • full integration with the goalies to allow for more shooting practice and game-like situational practice
  • a continual program that expands and challenges you over the entire season


This season, we will be integrating the goalie skills session in with the skaters with Steel Goaltending providing instruction at all sessions. As there will be a limited number of goalies who can attend each session, goalies must pre-register for the session they would like to attend. You can do this through your RAMP registration login - select your division and under Packages, you will have the ability to choose dates and times. If you require assistance with accessing RAMP, please email Tasha.


Please see below for the schedule by division.
