Typical Day

Weekend Camps typically begin Thursday afternoon with registration, a brief orientation, and an evening ice time followed by a meet and greet reception. Friday and Saturday consist of two 2 hour ice sessions and a lecture on strategy and play making as well as “Techniques and Tactics”, our interactive outdoor lecture. These lectures are scheduled to allow you to take advantage of the camp location. Saturday night is a dinner banquet for all campers and staff. Your last ice time is Sunday morning, allowing for afternoon travel.

One Week Camps follow a similar format that allows for more instruction throughout the week. Daily lectures, recreational activities, and a team dinner are scheduled between and after the on-ice sessions throughout the week. Some locations also offer optional ice times to allow for an additional opportunity to work on specific skills. Every evening after the second ice time, coaches and players gather to talk hockey over a cool beverage. The camp has an end of week banquet and the last day is reserved for travel home.

At both weekend and week long camps, the day's early session will focus on individual skills such as power skating, stick handling, passing and shooting. The second ice time will focus on positional play and game strategy. Instructional scrimmages will also be held during this time. These scrimmages give your coaches the opportunity to be behind the bench, coaching you on a smarter more effective way to play your position.

Your coaches will  execute a progressive plan of individualized skill development.  Creative drills and maximum use of ice time are the trademarks of the CAN/AM coaches.

A detailed schedule will be sent prior to your arrival at camp.
