Black Elk Hockey Camp offers week-long day camps males and females approximately 6 to 15 years of age. Players are grouped according to age and level played in their most recent season. Day Camp programs provide a wide variety of activity both on and off the ice.
ON THE ICE
Players take part in both a power skating as well as skills session each day. Instruction and development are provided in skating technique, balance, acceleration, starting and stopping. Players also receive skills instruction in stick-handling, passing, pass-receiving and shooting.
OFF THE ICE
Skill development offered through a variety of activities that help with agility, balance, coordination and speed. Programs are based on age and skill level and focus on fun activities that support the development and/or improvement of fundamental movement and sport skills.
Short, interactive and educational classroom sessions that cover topics such as defensive, neutral and offensive play; team play, as well as nutrition and lifestyle choices. Younger groups will have sessions on equipment and rules.
Players will have the chance to put their skills to work in two, controlled scrimmages scheduled throughout the week as well as a final game on the last day of their camp.
