It takes many years of training to become a great skater and player.

If skaters are taught correct skating technique from a young age they will eventually be able to play their game without even thinking about their skating!

They will be confident in their skates and on their edges, and be able to focus on their game.

 

In order to ensure all skaters receive ample attention a maximum skater to instructor ratio will be 5:1. For the younger age groups the skater to instructor ratio will be 4:1 at the camps.

CAMP DESCRIPTIONS

 

“Quickness” Camp

Explosive acceleration on the ice requires proper use of edges, quick feet, power with full leg drive, and forward lean. There are 3 basic starts worked on in this camp: forward sprint start, cross-over start, and back starts.

 

“Agility” Camp

Edges, edges, edges! This camp is designed to improve agility with work on edges, cross-overs, lateral movement, and all turns!

 

Comprehensive Camps

These are all-inclusive camps that attempt to cover all fundamental skating skills required to play hockey or ringette. Skating skills include balance, edges, forward and back stride, cross-overs and lateral movement, stops and starts, turns and agility moves.

 

Speed and Stride Camps

These camps focus on the 3 ingredients of SPEED – technique, power, and quickness! Skating skills include forward and back stride, cross-overs, and quick starts.
