Skating, stick handling, shooting summer intensive
Girls and Boys Summer Camps
The Kellian Hockey Explosive! and Advanced Playmaker Summer Camps are tailored for players seeking to elevate their skills in skating, puck control, and shooting with a heightened focus on advanced techniques and a faster pace. These camps offer intensive on-ice training, with participants spending 2 hours per day on the ice from Monday to Friday, excluding the off-ice component. These camps are designed for players aged 13-15 years (boys) and 13-16 years (girls).
Our commitment to personalized instruction remains paramount, with a low coach-to-camper ratio ensuring that each participant receives substantial individual attention. The primary emphasis of these Kellian Hockey summer camps revolves around advancing skating techniques, including deeper balance, high-tempo inside and outside edge control, explosive stops and starts, powerful crossovers, and proficient forwards and backwards skating. Additionally, players will engage in skating drills with a puck, placing a strong emphasis on puck control and enhancing overall stick handling skills.
The Advanced Playmaker camp is dedicated to the strategic aspects of gameplay. Participants will delve into passing techniques, game concept strategies, and Power Play/Penalty kill techniques in-depth.
Both Boys groups will also incorporate a Bodychecking component during the week.
For the most comprehensive summer skill training experience, players are encouraged to attend both the advanced skill training week, followed by the Advanced Playmaker camp. This provides an excellent opportunity for players to apply their newfound skills in actual game situations.
A typical day at our camp involves dropping off your children at the rink no later than 30 minutes before their scheduled ice time. Morning ice sessions run from 9:00 am to 11:00 am every day, followed by afternoon sessions from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm. Please be prepared to pick up your children fifteen minutes after their on-ice sessions conclude.
At Kellian Hockey, we firmly believe that a strong foundation in fundamental technique fosters creativity. Players develop their own unique style over time. Therefore, instead of overwhelming participants with an extensive array of skills to learn in a week, we focus on key fundamentals, delving into them at a deeper level.
Sessions are divided as follows:
Boys-only session: Ages 13 through 15 years old.
Girls-only session: Ages 13-16 years old.
Players younger than 13 may be considered with a recommendation from their current coach.
