SUMMER CAMP

 

Full Day Summer Camp

This full-day camp will provide your child with various activities to make them a more complete hockey player.  The first on-ice session will focus on power skating, and skill development using progressive drills.  The second on-ice session will consist of tactical strategies to improve game play during controlled scrimmages.  During the off-ice sessions, your child will participate in low organized TGFU (Teaching Games for Understanding) activities that reinforce strategies to be successful on the ice.  

TGFU

Teaching Games For Understanding - The TGFU model involves teaching children a modified or simplified game that is suitable for their physical, social and mental development. This appreciation invites the children to realize tactical awareness of how to play a game to gain an advantage over their opponents.

TEAM BUILDING

The concept of teamwork is extremely important to the success of any hockey team. Teamwork and unselfishness create the backbone of a great player and a great team. Team building will be discussed and taught in a hands on manner through a variety of games and activities to fully engage each player.

VIDEO

Fun and informative hockey videos have been selected for player viewing to emphasize certain skills: Scoring, passing, shooting techniques, teamwork, preparation etc.
