Why Have a Power Skating Camp?

The game of hockey is getting faster, & skating is the most fundamental skill for players to learn. Skating is the foundation for being able to pass, shoot, stickhandle, hit, and play the game. This is why we will focus exclusively on skating each Monday night throughout the summer.

Power Skating Camp Focus

The Power Skating Camp will focus on breaking down the skating stride(s) to their most basic points, and slowly building the mechanics of the skating stride together. When you build a skating stride step by step with a lot of reps, you create the fundamental habits that result in a great skater with powerful strides!

Development for Goalies

Goalies will have experienced goalie coaches to help them focus on the fundamentals of how goalies skate & move in a game. Goalies will have a dedicated end of the ice to work on their footwork, edgework, & movements.

Why Have a Skills Camp?

During the regular hockey season with limited practice time, most youth teams put an emphasis on team play and design the practices to focus on team concepts to prepare for game situations. This makes it very difficult to develop individual skillsets for each player. The Skills Camp has been developed so that players can improve their individual skills sets which will allow them to be a more effective player when put back into a team setting.

Skills Camp Details

  • Open to all ages (5 to 18)

  • 12 Practice Sessions

  • Practice Dates: June 8, 10, 15, 17, 22, & 24th, July 13, 15, 20, 22, 27th, & 28th

Skills Camp Focus

The Skills Camp will focus on stickhandling, passing, shooting, & fundamental gameplay skills. The drills for each sill set are designed to replicate game situations. With enough practice the skills learned in this camp will become instinctive when players are put back into an actual game. 

Development for Goalies

Goalies will have experienced goalie coaches to help them focus on the fundamentals of how to position themselves against different types of shots, shooting angles, & offensive rush situations.

Why Have a Position Camp?

During the regular hockey season with limited practice time, most youth teams put an emphasis on team play and design the practices to focus on team concepts to prepare for game situations. This makes it very difficult to develop individual skills at each position. The Spring Position Camp has been developed so that players can improve their position specific skills & be at their absolute best heading into the travel team tryouts in the spring.

Spring Position Camp Focus

The focus of the Spring Position Camp is to maximize the amount of practice reps that each player gets in drills & situations where they are focused completely on becoming better at their specific position. Players can register as either a forward, defenseman, or a goalie for this camp. 

The 8U & 10U age groups will practice both forward and defensive positions throughout the camp.

The 12U, 14U, 16U, and 18U age groups will register for one position and specialize on that position throughout the camp.
