The Kellian Hockey 8U Skill Development summer camp is geared towards players who are entering 8U or who are currently playing at that level. With a low coach to camper ratio, each skater will receive a lot of personal attention. The emphasis of the 8U summer camp is centered around overall skill development in skating and balance techniques, puck control, shooting and game awareness strategies. The off-ice skill development includes teaching kids about their equipment, how to dress themselves (we will tie skates and buckle helmets), and teach how to manage their sticks (stick length, taping the blade and knob). We will also work with campers on appropriate behavior in the locker room. A typical day at camp... drop your kids off at the Stowe Arena for an off-ice stick handling clinic at 9:00 am. Morning ice time at 10:00 - 11:00 am. The morning session focuses on fundamental edge and balance techniques. Kellian Hockey camps target select fundamental techniques that allow a player to quickly transition into performing more advanced moves increasing their ability to be more creative and effective. Then we break for lunch (not provided). 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 "creating a plan" before he/she receives the puck. The second ice time goes from 1:45 pm to 2:45pm. The focus is engaging in drills that further develops the morning techniques in competitive and non competitive small games or challenges. You can pick up your kids at 3:00 pm. The Kellian Hockey 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. 1: Skating Fundamentals.
