SO WHAT LEVEL PLAYER IS THIS CAMP FOR?
The drills are aimed at adult beginner and intermediate players. We currently have adult players who are comletely new to the game having only done 'Stick & Puck' before whereas others have completed Hockey Camps or are already involved in Rec Hockey or Mens/Ladies League Hockey. Whatever your skill this is a great camp for you to work on your game.
HOW WILL THE DRILLS HELP ME AS A NEW PLAYER?
The drills are not so much Player vs Player, they are skill development drills where you can work on your own game in each drill whilst interacting with others but not in a competitive scenario, you can take it at your pace without the fear of messing up or holding up others on the ice, we find this gives players a relaxed mind which helps them quickly improve.
WHAT ARE THE DRILLS?
There are so many drills that we will be doing at the camp that it is easier to tell you about the way we will go about them. So we will not be doing drills for the sake of doing drills, for each one we will be explaining the fundamentals of how you do it, what I mean by this is we will be explaining how to improve your stance, your stick position, your skating stride, keeping your head up, where the puck should be in relation to you and your stick and many other tips, all to get the best out of you and the drill.
As I said above they are not player vs player so for every drill you will have a puck and be working on skating, stick handling, passing, receiving, shooting and a few nice little dekes & dangles that help give you more time with the puck when playing competitively.
WHAT LEVEL PLAYER SIGNS UP?
It is very varied, we have players that have only done stick & puck sessions and now looking to progress their game to the next level. We have players that have been playing Rec for several years and want to learn more about the game. We also have players that have been out of the game for 20+ years due to kids or work commitments who have decided they want to play again so need the development drills to help them get the muscle memory and fitness back.
WHAT AGE ARE THE PLAYERS WHO ARE ATTENDING THE CAMP?
It's for over 18's only. Most are 30 - 50 yrs old but we do have a couple of 18-25's and a couple of 60+ guys attending. Both male and female players from all over, many I have coached before.
IS THERE ANY OFF ICE TRAINING?
There is no actual team off ice sessions, but there is homework for the players to do! We have some great reference videos for you to watch. It's very important that players watch these videos as these are some of the techniques we will be working on in the sessions.
You'll need to find and clear area in your house or garden and watch with a stick & gloves on and practice everything shown. It takes 1000 hours to build muscle memory for each techinique so time spent at home doing it correctly helps so much.
Hope this answers some questions for you, any further questions message us as we're happy to help.

Jake H - The coaches were amazing and attentive to each players needs, really well thought out session plan and adjustments to the groups needs. Really looking forward to the next one
Igor 0 - I attended the bootcamp this Summer and enjoyed every minute of it. The program is packed with drills - no idle cycles, unless for a sip on water. It is not only about stick and puck handling skills but it also brings one’s physic up a level. Luckily, the camp is to carry on through the rest of the year, and I am in already.
Here are a few reference videos that help explain some of the things we will be working on in the camp. These videos are uploaded to Youtube by other coaches mainly from North America. We have picked these out for you as they're very well explained so you can watch at home with gloves and stick to get a feel for the positioning required for each movement. Enjoy.
