We want anyone who attends any of our programs to feel that they have experienced something special. With respect to hockey camps, we do not want to be "just another hockey camp". After 20 years in business, our objectives for our hockey camps have evolved to be the following:
To offer a program at an affordable cost to anyone who wishes to attend a quality hockey camp.
To have parents of players leave our camp and be totally satisfied from our services on and off the ice.
To develop hockey skills by:
Teaching specialized instruction (Camp themes: Power Skating & Puck control, Power Shooting, Forwards & Defense, and Checking).
Having a Low student - teacher ratio of 7 to 1 (the lowest of any camp) and limiting the number of students to 33 per group.
Pre planned curriculum for ice sessions, classroom and dryland.
Circuit training system, keeping all players and instructors active.
Hiring quality people to coach at the camp.
Teach players life skills such as teamwork, punctuality, group interaction, discipline and cooperation.
For the summer of 2004 we are going to introduce personal growth and mental training into our program.
Provide a positive atmosphere of fun, fitness and hard work.
When players leave our camp we want them to feel they improved their skills, worked hard, had fun and worked with the best and most organized instructors ever!
