SUMMER HOCKEY CAMP DETAILS

All our sessions/camps are appropriately paced to challenge all skaters with activities/drills that are innovative and unique. Drill progression and repetition will allow each player to be an active participant in their own skill development. Each athlete's overall development as a complete player is directly related to his or her skating ability.

 

Here at Attack Sports, it is our goal to make each player a stronger competitor with increased confidence in their abilities.
