SKILLS & DRILLS CAMP

Ages 6 – 9

Aug. 12 – 16, 2024

In this 5 day Skills & Drills camp we cover all the fundamental  techniques to skate forwards and backwards in the 1st ice session.

In the 2nd ice session of the day we add the pucks to the skating drills and teach the players how to shoot, pass and finish off with a small area SCRIMMAGE.

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 and player habits that lead to overall player development.
