​This summer train over an extended period of time by simply breaking up the full day camp into half days. Come for skill specific on-ice sessions, challenging dryland and boardroom sessions to allow for you to learn about why you are doing things.

We have half days (1 skills) OR full days (2 skills) available depending on the week, to allow players to continue to progress leading up to tryouts. This gives the option for a longer, more consistent and intense training program that will continue to challenge players to improve.
