Christmas Defensemen Camp – 2022
December 22 and 23, 2022, at BURNABY WINTER CLUB
Playing defence on a team is a very specialized position with particular skills that coaches seldom have time to work on. Likewise, being a defenseman is one of the most challenging and demanding positions to master.
You will work specific defenseman drills at this camp to improve your skating, puck handling, passing, shooting, and defending skills.
You don’t have to be a defenseman to attend this camp; forwards that want to improve their defensive skills will also benefit. In addition, our classroom will cover some on-ice skills and drills and lessons on mental training and character building.
Attending this camp will bring out your passion and desire to be an effective top defenseman.
