Skills & Drills Camp

(ages 10 – 13) Aug. 19-23, 2019

Our Skills & Drills camp features two on-ice sessions daily plus off-ice activities such as yoga and road hockey. The full-day camp runs for a week. Players will work on their skating in the morning, enjoy off-ice activities, and then in the afternoon return to the ice with pucks for skill development and practice of shooting, passing and stickhandling.

Each on-ice session begins with 15 to 20 minutes of warm-up, instruction and practice on edges. Then the main group splits into three smaller ones based on current skill level. Your child will work with peers as an opportunity to build confidence in skating. This confidence creates good habits that lead to player development.

Location: Oceanside Place, Parksville

Time: 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Fee: $399
