Summer Half Day Camps 2022

Elite Summer Training Program

Half Day Camps with Jake Gushue and Gushue Athletic Development

We are proud to be teaming up with Gushue Athletic Development for an Elite Summer Training Program. The Half Day Camps will consist of three hours of training per day. Each day will consist of an hour of on-ice training, an hour of synthetic ice shooting and stickhandling, and an hour of dryland strength and conditioning. There will be 15 minutes in between each rotation to give players time to get ready for their next working session. The camps will be located at the Academy Rink where we can fully utilize the ice, synthetic, and gym. Each group is limited to five players with one highly qualified coach per group.
