Kellian Elite Girls
Skills Development Summer Camp
Summer provides many hockey players the opportunity to play with different teams and players. The Kellian Elite, Girls Summer Skills Development Camp provides a venue for players to train and play for different coaches and to help develop their game against top players from across the North East. This Camp is geared for girls who have college hockey or higher levels of play in their sights. They are hungry for elite level skill development and want train with other elite level players. Applicants should either play at the Prep School, AA or AAA level, or have a recommendation from their current High School coach. Ages: 14 - 19 years.
A typical day at camp: We start off with an off-ice, stick handling clinic at 9:00 am. Morning ice time is from 10:00 - 11:15 am. The morning session focuses on powerskating and puck control. We work on explosive edge techniques and strategic balance maneuvers that promote stability in high speed lateral skating. Explosive starts and stops, and effective lateral movement makes up 80% of all the skating a player does on the ice. Along with the powerskating, we target select fundamental puck control techniques that allow a player to quickly transition into performing more advanced moves increasing their ability to be creative and effective. Then we break for lunch. After that, we get into our off-ice game awareness training. We will be engaging in various activities that develops a player's sense of awareness, prediction and anticipation. The second ice time runs from 1:45pm to 3:00pm. The focus is to further develop the morning techniques in competitive and non competitive small games or challenges. Each day concludes at 3 pm.
The Kellian Elite philosophy revolves around the idea that depth in fundamental technique encourages creativity. A player will develop their own style over time... so instead of offering an extensive breadth of skills to learn over the week, we focus on key fundamentals, and work on them deeper and at higher speeds against other Elite level players.
