SPECIALITY PROGRAMS:

Defence Camp
Open to players born 2001-2004. Their speedy winger is breaking towards the wall. Your gap is good. You’ve matched his pace. But can you stop him? The focus of the Defence Camp, both on and off the ice, is to teach players the skills and tactics required to become a better defenceman.

Battle and Compete Camp
Open to players born 2001-2004. The puck goes into the corner and you chase it. You've got the will - but do you have the skill? Our Battle and Compete Camp will push players to compete at a higher level and to become more comfortable with body contact and physically engaging drills.

Shooter and Scorers Camp
Open to players born 2001-2004. You’ve won the battle, the puck is on your stick, and the goalie moves out to challenge. What next? The Shooters & Scorers Camp is designed for players of all levels that are looking to improve their dangling and sniping skills in a fast paced, positive and fun camp environment.

Power/Battle Combo Camp
Open to players born 2004-2007. The puck goes into the corner, and you chase it. You've got the will - but do you have the speed and skill? The Power Skating/Battle Combo Camp is designed to help players of all levels improve their skating technique and mechanics in the morning and then work on puck protection, checking skills and learning to be more competitive in the afternoon.

Specialty Camp Goalies

Open to players born 2001-2004. You made a great first save. Are you ready for the rebound? The goaltenders position within our specialty camps (Defence Camp, Shooter and Scorers Camp and the Battle and Compete Camps) focuses on the refinement of fundamental skills both on and off the ice.
