Summer Camp Information 2023 (REVISED)

Updated: Jun 8, 2023

REGISTRATION FORM IS ON THE HOME PAGE AND LIVE.


In the post below, you will find all the specific camp information for our Summer 2023 skating camps. I am putting the General Information in this top paragraph because I don't want these points to get missed.


First, I won't take any registrations before 6:00pm on Monday, May 1st. 2023. Also, please make sure that you contact me and ensure that you have a spot BEFORE sending any money. Registration is on a first come, first served basis and all email, texts and messenger messages on Facebook, Instagram and the Wix app will be used to determine who gets their pick of camps and who may have to look at another day or time.


Second, I have tried to offer something for everyone's age but Level categories are always a bit of a guideline and not written in stone, however over the summer I am trying to keep the disparity between skaters to a minimum. You know your child, so please send me a message and ask if you don't know which camp to choose.


Lastly, all camp registrants must provide a 35% deposit (listed in the camp description)within 48 hours of spot confirmation, with the remainder of camp fees due at least 48 hours before the camp start date. We accept eTransfer to focusedskating@gmail.com, Credit and Debit Card in person, Cash and cheque made out to Ben Russenholt.

This is one of two camps for the younger crowd. If they have played at least a season of IP or higher and just need those last few skills to set them on their way, this is the camp. Focus on this camp will be pure fundamentals. Stance, balance, posture and edges will be our main priority so that by session 4 we can work some trickier skills like stopping, turning and backwards skating. Crossovers are also on the menu, just further into the camp when we have mastered outside edges.
