Puck Handling and Skating Clinic
June 26-29 @ Patterson Ice Center - See Schedule
Squirt and Pee Wee age. Must have a minimum of one year house hockey or more. Please call if you have questions.
A fun-filled, introductory summer program for players who want to learn and improve the proper skills of puck handling and specific stick handling moves (dekes) in order to progress in this sport. This is our primary foundation camp that will help players improve in these skill areas in only one week. Basic off-ice instruction is also provided on what to do at home in order to build skills in these important areas. Two and a half hours of daily on-ice instruction will be supported by off-ice sessions that will show each player how to work on puck skills off the ice at home during the summer months. A skating skills session is included daily to increase balance, speed and agility. Scrimmage sessions on Thursday will help "build in" the skills we work each day. Parents will also have the opportunity to meet with Coach Baum and his staff to ask questions and gain valuable information on how to help their young hockey player properly learn these FUN-damental skills. All sessions are open for parents to observe. A camp jersey is also included.
