Individualized Training Day Camp

We are offering our most popular camp program, Individualized Training, as an on-ice only hockey camp. CAN/AM is offering this unique program to only 20 skaters per group. Ten coaches will join each group for a 2:1 on ice ratio!  This unique ratio ensures this program is designed specifically for you and your needs. Each ice time will be designed with you specifically in mind. Having trouble with backward crossovers to your left? Your coach can work with you. Weak slapshot? No problem as your coach takes you aside for your personalized instruction. Never really understood the “trap” but were afraid to ask? Here is a chance to pick your coach’s brain.

Don’t miss this exciting opportunity to work one-on-one with some of the best teachers in the game of hockey!

To ensure proper sanitation, equipment bags will not be stored in the arena overnight. Campers will be responsible to carry out their own equipment.

What to Bring

It is a good idea to try on all hockey equipment prior to leaving for camp to ensure that it still fits (especially your skates).  Blue Line Sports is fully equipped pro shop located at the Sports Center and available in case you need new equipment or sharpening.  However, you should remember that if new skates are required, they should be purchased and broken in before camp.  The hockey clinic is not the right place for breaking in a new pair of skates.

We are looking for goalies from age 10 to 16. We limit the number of goalies, making sure that your participation means a lot of work in the net. To be considered for this program, goalies that wish to participate must be able to attend every ice session during the week. Every goalie will be on the ice for 15 hours starting on Monday morning through Friday afternoon.

The cost for this program is $75 per week. This cost includes daily activities from the first ice session until the end of the second ice session. Your fee also includes a CAN/AM Hockey jersey.
