Camp Director
Braden Zehner

I grew up near Madison, WI and was lucky to grow up playing hockey in an area where there was a lot of good coaches & competition. I was blessed to play at the AAA, Junior A, & NCAA DIII levels throughout my career. I've been involved in coaching & skill development since I was 16 years old & have always enjoyed helping kids reach their potential and giving back. I was fortunate to have great coaches & mentors as I grew up, and now it is my turn to do the same for the youth hockey players in the Louisville area.

Our Coaching Staff

Our coaching staff for 2022 is comprised of over 20 coaches that combine to provide a high level of experience and instruction. We have coaches with playing experience at the professional, NCAA (college varsity), ACHA (college club), Junior A, & AAA high school levels.  

Our strategy in developing practice plans for the camps, is to get the skaters as many reps as possible while minimizing the amount of time spent standing still or waiting in a line. The goal for the 2022 Camps is to have 2 coaches with each group at each station (10-12 total coaches per practice). We believe that with 10-12 coaches on the ice at each practice, we can achieve a player to coach ratio of 5 to 1. With this staffing plan we believe we can maximize the amount of instruction and development that each skater gets while in the camp!
