Spring 3on3

I'm excited to announce the follow up to our inaugural 3on3 season from last year! This season we look forward to running four different age groups that will take to the ice for 20 sessions beginning in mid April and ending June 2nd (primary rinks Confederation, Terwillegar and Kinsmen). Of the 20 ice times; 12 are straight one hour games while the other eight sessions run 1.25 hours, combining 30-40 minutes of skills development with 30-40 minutes of 3on3.

Evaluation Prep Camp (goalies included) August 19th - August 23rd at Kinsmen Arena

I look forward to continuing our evaluation prep camps in the last two weeks of August.  These camps focus mostly on skills and getting back the skating legs and stick skills prior to the start of the season.  We will begin the week with power skating (forwards, backwards, transitions, stopping, acceleration, jab stepping, edge control) before moving on during the middle of the week to puck handling, passing, and shooting.  The last day we focus on small area games and applying the core hockey skills to game situations.  The cost of the camp is $190 plus GST (total of $199.50).

Evaluation Prep Camp #2 (goalies included) August 26th-30th at Terwillegar Arena

Summer Defenceman Camp-August 12th-16th Terwillegar Rink C

I am excited that we will again offer a defenceman camp for Atoms and Pee Wees who are excited about learning the intricacies of playing the position. The reason I get so excited about defence camps is because it gives me a chance to really "geek out" on a lot of the little things kids can do to help them get better at playing defence. I am hoping to keep this group as small as possible (15-18 skaters) so that we can have a lot of time to talk through the drills on the ice and discuss why we are doing them. As instructors we enjoy getting to know the kids and the small groups allow a lot of one-on-one time with the players. We will cover all aspects of the position from walking the blue line, defensive angling, offensive angling, stick position, using the body, breakout progressions, controlling net front sticks, pinching, reverses, using your partner, agility, mobility, and on and on!
