    • We will email you confirmation of your son or daughter's spot at least a week after you register.
    • Participant packets, including daily schedule, what to bring, what to expect and more, will be sent out at least 2 weeks prior to camp.

    • We ask that you arrive at least 30 minutes before your first session.
  • Which players will be at the camps?
    • Due to players' schedules, we cannot guarantee any players at camp, but we will do our best to invite them out if they are in town.
  • What will the on-ice sessions consist of?
    • The first session will be geared toward individual skills, such as power-skating, edgework, agility, puck-handling and shooting. The second session will focus on more individual skills, as well as team skills, like 1v1, 2v2 and scrimmages.
  • What will the campers do when not on the ice?
    • Besides the two on-ice sessions, campers will enjoy:
      • Off-ice training: We’ve hired expert coaches who will take the campers through various off-ice training routines each day. Each session will be designed to fit the appropriate age and skill level. Campers will learn hockey-specific exercises that will help them improve their skills when they step on the ice.
      • Lunch session will be structured and supervised daily.  
  • Is lunch included?
    • Lunch is not included in the registration price. Depending on the camp location, there may be a concession stand or vending options. Outside food is welcome for campers during the week. Be sure to pack plenty of snacks and fluids in addition to lunch.
