From Bruising Player to
Extraordinary Skills Coach
Lance Pitlick spent 12 seasons playing professional hockey as a bruising defenseman who prided himself on big hits and blocked shots.
Today, he’s an off-ice stickhandling and shooting specialist who works with hockey players, both in person and online, from the peewees to the pros. Though Coach Lance’s body ended his playing career, it couldn’t stop his passion for the game. As he stepped away from professional hockey and watched his two boys fall in love with the sport, he noticed a difference. His punishing style of play was giving way to more finessed stick skills and precision shooting ability.
To give his sons the greatest chance to play at a high level, he went out in search of off-ice stickhandling and shooting training and didn’t find much. He saw an opportunity, setting forth to learn everything he possibly could about elite stickhandling and shooting skills, and committing to be the best stickhandling coach on the planet.
In 2008, he began training players in his practice facility, seeing tremendous improvement in their skill development. Over the years, he has trained over 1,000 players, including professional, collegiate, junior, high school and youth players, both male and female.
Geographic limitations of training players out of his training studio inspired Online Hockey Training, which launched with its fully digital, fully online training program in 2018.
