This five-evening power skating camp covers fundamentals including shooting, stick handling and passing. On the last day we review all skating techniques and puck skills as a group and finish the week with a controlled scrimmage.
Each 75-minute session starts with your child working on crossovers, step-overs and c-cuts. Then we break into three groups based on ability so your child learns among peers. This helps build confidence when learning a new technique. At end of the session we come back together and work on balance and agility.
Location: Oceanside Place, Parksville
Time: 5:00 to 6:15 p.m.
