High Performance Offence and Defence Camps 2024

We are excited to announce our second wave of camps. These camps will be directed to travel players looking to focus in on their position or skill set. We are always doing our best to improve and advance our development techniques while offering the best product for an enjoyable, engaging experience for the athlete.

Fort Erie - Offence Camp July 15th-19th

This camp will focus on game specific reps while correcting and fine tuning foundational skills. We will develop the athletes awareness while under pressure and ability to escape from confined space. The week will have a daily progression from foundational functional training to high performance skills while encouraging and supporting the athlete to try new things and build on their individual creativeness.

These hour and a half sessions will have constant shooting and skating with minimal breaks to maximize the weeks progression. It is the perfect camp for a player who's looking to push their skills to the next level.

Available Spots:

2013-2015 11:00 am-12:30 pm (WAITING LIST)
2010-2012 12:30pm-2:00pm (WAITING LIST)


Pelham - Defence Camp August 12th-16th

This camp will focus on bringing the best defensive and offensive skills out of your young defenceman. Along with backwards skating, pivots, quick feet and overall mobility we will bring in game specific drills to replicate game like situations where the athlete would be generating offensive options, puck protection or outlet passing options. This position is ever evolving into a two way style of athlete with the ability to protect while generating offence.

For this camp we will have a guest instructor, Matt Macdonald. Matt has been a defence coach the past 6 seasons in the AHL. He has helped developed players such as Mortiz Seider, Dennis Cholowski, Filip Hronek, Simon Edvinsson and many more on their paths to the NHL.

Available Spots:

2013-2015 12:15 pm-1:45pm (1 Spot Available)
2010-2012 1:45 pm-3:15 pm (WAITING LIST)

6th Annual Skating and Skills Summer Camp

We are excited to continue to grow the next wave of hockey players and this summer camp has been built to maximize our time on ice with each of the players while working around family vacation schedules.

Each option will have a cap to maximize our player to instructor ratio. We have also compressed these camps to one week (Monday-Friday) with an hour and half on the ice for each session. By doing this the players will be able to develop quicker and retain more than a "once a week" camp could provide.

Camp Dates/Available Spots:

Fort Erie - Monday, July 8th to Friday, July 12th
2016-2018 11:00 am-12:30 pm (2 spots available)
2013-2015 12:30pm-2:00pm (WAITING LIST)

Pelham - Monday, August 5th to Friday, August 9th
2016-2018 Mon: 11:00 am-12:30pm Tues-Fri: 12:00 am-1:30 pm (4 spots available)
