Develop the skill, confidence and knowledge of hockey in young athletes through incorporating a variety of innovative hockey drills. We will demonstrate, correct and encourage every participant in the camps by utilizing proper form, good habits and techniques. We believe that improving a skill comes through repetition and positive reinforcement.
It takes 10,000 hours or 10,000 repetitions to master a skill… With the ages of 9-12 being the most important for skill acquisition it is during this time period that the skills included in the speciality clinics need to be repeated consistently. (Hockey Canada, 2005)
Had a great Spring Season with the 2007, 2006, 2005 and 2004 age groups I want to thank all the players and parents for their hard work and time commitments. Also a big thanks to the coaches Matt Maltais, Evan Schwabe, Dustin Ernest and Keiren Kitts.
2016 Summer- Will be running a junior & pro conditioning camp starting end of July until they leave for tryouts.
Conditioning Camp Dates & Times:
Conditioning camp dates and times are posted below and on the website at www.epichockeycamps.com . These camps will provide players an opportunity to get ready for the upcoming hockey season through ice sessions designed to get their hands, legs and conditioning back after the summer in preparation for try outs. Each ice session will feature high tempo drills with minimal time spent on instruction, therefore basic skills are required. This is not a skills camp. These camps will be fast paced and intended to improve players’ physical conditioning!
If interested in attending please fill out registration form on the website and I will send you a confirmation that I have received and mark them down. Last year it filled up quick and had to turn players away so get your registrations in… Goalies pay half price and the first two that I have signed up will be in. Prices are as follows and can be paid by Etransfer, cash or cheque (make out to Weisgerber Management).
