Power Skating
This Power Skating portion of the camp will provide players with an opportunity to learn the value of proper skating techniques, and coordinating balance, movement and strength. The highly qualified instructors will challenge players to step outside their comfort level as they become more self aware of their inside and outside edges, as well as the flat surface of the skate blade. The end result of this camp will create a player who is more confident in their skating ability due to improved strength, agility, balance, and speed.

Puck Skills
The Puck Skills part of the camp is designed where players of all ages and skill levels can improve on their individual talents. Ice time will be structured where players move through a series of challenging drills that take a different focus each day of the camp. Puck skills sessions are structured with a specific focus that will change each day of the camp. Players will work in small groups in a specific area of the ice. Player achievement will be based solely on their own effort and work ethic. The drills are tailored with a more individualistic approach to learning, as opposed to a full ice, team approach.

Dryland Training
Players will be exposed to various stations of dryland training that they can continue to do at home. The players will learn proper warmup and stretching techniques. They will learn exercises that will help them improve on their footwork, agility, balance, and core strength that will translate to their on-ice performance.

Team Building Challenges
Children are divided into teams that will participate in daily changing tasks, testing their collective abilities and problem-solving skills. As they navigate through a series of team-based puzzles and physical challenges, participants will learn to work with a variety of different team members, fostering adaptability and strengthening their ability to communicate and collaborate effectively. Each day is a new opportunity for growth and development as the groups change, requiring them to quickly adapt their strategies to new dynamics.
