Power Skating/Skills Camp!!

We are very excited to announce that we have added one more camp this summer- a Power Skating and Skills camp July 8-13th, 2019 in Edmonton, Alberta! Most of the camps that we run are “Prep” camps, mainly targeting preparing players for upcoming try-outs whether that is Spring Camps, Main Camps, Try-Outs, etc. This is an opportunity for players to come in without being seen by scouts, and improve their personal game through individual skill work. This camp will be very demanding, so come prepared.

7.5 hours of on-ice work, as well as 3 hours of dryland work will be offered for attending players. The first 3 days of camp, there will be a required one hour of dryland prior to each session outside- focusing on power, explosiveness, foot speed, reactionary speed, and more. The on-ice portion will include the following:

  • Forward Stride
  • Explosive Starts
  • Crossovers
  • Elite Shooting Tactics
  • Puck Handling
  • Position-Specific Skill Work
  • Game Awareness

Unlike any other camp, we will be implementing the use of VIDEO ANALYSIS during the camp to go more in-depth with the players about the details of their skills. Breaking down players’ stride, shot release points, hand positioning while handling pucks, and weight transfer will be some of the things covered while doing video during camp.

Practice does not make perfect- PERFECT PRACTICE makes perfect. There will be lots of repetition for the first few days- but this is needed to reiterate what we are trying to teach and incorporate into players’ habits. As said above, this camp is not for everybody and will be physically demanding. If you want to be the best, you must train as so!
