Player development through close attention, personalized feedback and performance metrics.

Overtime Hockey Skills Center is a privately owned training facility located in Cobble Hill, British Columbia. We were formed from the realization that young players have little access to concrete performance metrics to set goals against. Development for these players is based on qualitative evaluations on skills like shooting and speed from coaches and peers. Our mission is to provide local players and teams access to NHL-grade technology that gives quantitative performance feedback on attributes like shooting, speed and power so that players can have more accurate benchmarks against which to set goals for development.

Our Trainers

Brett Hopwo

Brett is excited to provide an opportunity for players to fine tune their strengths while achieving growth and development by tackling areas of weakness.  Along with the other Overtime coaches, Brett shares the long term vision of challenging players to achieve their potential by focusing first on skating technique, speed, quickness, efficiency, and agility.  Brett’s philosophy and driver is that inspiration trumps motivation so our goal is for every player to leave our program driven each day from the inside.  Brett’s promise in building the foundation at Overtime is to focus on quality of our programs as well as attention to different personalities and needs of each player.  The result is dynamic growth through continuously evolving content and challenging programs that keep pace with the ever changing hockey environment.
