Skills & Drills Camp

(ages 10 – 13) Aug. 16-20, 2021

In this 5 day Skills & Drills camp (2 hour session) we cover all the fundamentals and techniques to skate forwards and backwards in the 1st hour. In the 2nd hour we add the pucks to the skating drills and teach the players how to shoot and pass.

We start together as 1 main group working on inside and outside edges. Then I split the main group into three smaller ones based on the players current skill level. Your child will work with their peers as an opportunity to build confidence in learning a new skill. This confidence creates good skating habits that lead to overall player development.

Location: Oceanside Place, Parksville

Time: 11:00 am – 1:00 pm daily

Fee: $275

*NOTE COVID 19 – Although we are very hopeful that protocols will return to normal by August 2021 please be prepared for arena restrictions to still be in place, including no use of dressing rooms, outdoor registration and limited on-ice participants.

If restrictions are lifted we will return to our regular itinerary listed below; afternoon ice session, daily yoga, road hockey and other off-ice activities. The price will return to $399.00 each.
