The area around me has lots of adult clinics, and they vary. Here's what I've seen:
Protec Hockey Women's clinic- beginner/intermediate level, friendly small group. pretty even mix of skating technique, beginner hockey, and scrimmage
Protec Hockey Adult clinic- beginner and intermediate mixed. This clinic is very game situation focused. Lots of scrimmaging
Aspen Ice Flemington Adult Clinic- beginner and intermediate mixed. This one is very technique focused, no scrimmaging and limited game situations. Probably about 30 minutes of edge and stride work at the beginning every week
Bridgewater Sports Arena Adult clinic- good mix of technique and game situations. Often a pretty small group, so many times the lessons are oriented around dealing with specific issues people are having
Thanks dude! I might just start with that first one and see where I want to go from there. I have to figure out what rink I'll be closest too, my friend says there's one just around the corner from where she lives. Rinks are pretty common per suburb in America, right? There's only about three here in the whole of Sydney!
