Program Overview

We believe that the key to enjoying hockey is the development of basic skills.  These core skills include:
  • Skating - balance, agility, edge control, starting and stopping
  • Puck control - creativity and control in motion
  • Passing - speed, accuracy, proper technique
  • Shooting - technique, shooting in motion, shooting to score
  • Checking - angling, foot speed, stick and body positioning
  • Team play - offensive and defensive tactics
  • Goaltending - positioning, angles, reaction and team play
Our on-ice program is designed to introduce, drill and re-drill the player in the proper, sequential development of these fundamental hockey skills.  Each week includes a specific skill progression and culminates in a full-ice game to celebrate what we have learned over the week.

The full day hockey skills programs are designed to stress new fundamentals each day, teaching puck control, passing, shooting, skating, defensive and offensive concepts, and body checking after an extensive opening period of power skating.  This year, we are thrilled to include position-specific specialty clinics during the second ice time of the day. The last ice session of the camp is reserved for a controlled game (The "Big Apple").  

These are full day programs consisting of two ice sessions, in addition to a variety of off-ice activities.  Some examples of these activities may include dryland skill development, classroom sessions, guest speakers, yoga, core, strength and speed development.  Recreational activities may include floor hockey, soccer, dodgeball, and combatives.
