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.
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.
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.
