In the post below, you will find all the information for our Summer 2024 Camps. This spring we will hold 4 camps at four different age and skill levels. We are also back to a 12 skater cap this spring to allow us to better focus on individual skills 1:1. Skater cap for the U7 to U10 sessions will be 10. This summer I offer overlapping age groups on all 4 f the U13 and Up Camps so that skaters have the option of skating down or up depending on schedule, logistics and preference. Camps will be...

U7 to U10 - House League to Select

U13 and Up - House League to Select (2 camps)

U10 to U13 - OPEN (2 camps)

U13 and Up - A to AAA (2 camps)

SPEED CAMP. (1 Camp U12 and Up, 1 Camp U7 to U11)


Please scroll through the camp information and if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out.

U7 to U10 House League to Select:


Location: Invista Centre, CUPE 109


Time: 6:00am to 6:50am


Dates: Tuesday Mornings, June 18, 25, July 2 and 9th (4 Sessions)


Age Group: U7 to U10 House League to Select


Level: House League to Select, Non gender specific.


Session Cap: 10 skaters


Cost: $160 Due upon confirmation of registration.


If your skater has played at least a season of IP or higher and they 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.



U10 - U13 OPEN CAMP JJ:


Location: Invista Centre, CUPE 109


Time: 6:00am to 6:50am


Dates: Monday and Wednesday mornings, June 17, 19, 24, 26, July 3, 8 and 10th (7 Sessions)


Age Group: U10 - U13


Level: Open, all levels, Non gender specific.


Session Cap: 12 skaters


Cost: $280 Due upon confirmation of registration.


At this age and playing level the camp will focus on cleaning up the basics and teaching new skills and techniques. The fundamentals of stance, posture and balance will be covered and expanded. Edges always play a huge part in my camps and this one will be no different, as we will need them to move on to more complex skills like crossovers, turns, pivots and transitions. Of course, forward striding, starts, stops and acceleration will also be covered.


he entire camp targets speed, power and quickness. This is an all ages Co-ed camp BUT do to the focus of the camp, participants must have a good command of all 8 edges, be a high level forwards and backwards skater and have the ability to turn all directions.


SPEED CAMP, U12 and Up OPEN


Location : Invista Centre, CUPE 109


Time: 7:00am to 7:50am


Dates : Wednesday, Thursday Mornings June 19, 20, 26 and 27 (4 Sessions)


Level. U12 and Up OPEN


Session Cap : 12


Cost : $160.00


This camp will focus on one basic theme from start to finish. If there is one thing I hear from parents the most, it's that their son/daughter is a great skater BUT they struggle with their speed/quickness/acceleration. This camp will address just that. We will break down starts into the component pieces, add quickness and power, then reassemble them with maximum speed in mind. Crossovers (forwards and backwards) are becoming a larger component of the start sequence and so we will spend time making them quicker and more powerful as well. Finally, getting to top speed is one thing, maintaining that speed is another, and so we will work on forward striding with the goal of maximizing stride length and forward drive.



U13 and Up House League to Select Camp JJ:


Location: Invista Centre, MNP


Time: 7:30p to 8:20pm


Dates: Wednesday evenings, June 19, 26, July 3, 6, and 10th (5 sessions)


Age Group: U13 and Up


Level: House League to Select, Non gender specific.


Session Cap: 12 skaters


Cost: $200 Due upon confirmation of registration


At this age and playing level the camp will focus on their knowledge of fundamentals like stance, posture and balance. Edges always play a huge part in my camps and this one will be no different, as we will need them to move on to more complex skills like crossovers, turns, pivots and transitions. We will spend a few sessions just on transitions and lateral mobility as it plays an integral role in older players game as a whole. Of course, forward striding, starts, stops and acceleration will be covered both forwards and backwards.


U13 and Up A-AAA Camp JJ:


Location: Invista Centre, MNP


Time: 8:30 to 9:20pm


Dates: Wednesday evenings June 19, 26 July 3, 10, 17 (5 sessions)


Age Group: U13 and Up

Level: A, AA, AAA, Non gender specific.


Session Cap: 12 skaters


Cost: $200.00 Due upon confirmation of registration


This camp level will challenge skaters to push their skills to new heights. Edges, posture, and balance will all be covered in warm-ups so that we can get to the finer points of forward stride, crossovers, acceleration and power. Turns will play a huge part in this camp as will back backwards starts and skating. In this camp, I hope to be able to teach new skills and turns to better prepare participants for todays game like Slide turns, Stop turns, Punch turns and Early turns will all be broken down and thought in component pieces so when we put them all back together, they have flow and power. We will also spend time on linear crossover, fast feet and lateral mobility.
