The Weeks Crushers Hockey Club, along with Dave MacIntyre’s Train Like The Pros announced Monday that they have combined their summer hockey camps in hopes of providing a unique, fun and developmental camp for young hockey players in Pictou County.
The new weeklong camp is scheduled to run from Aug. 20 -24 and will focus on all aspects of the game including power skating, puck skills and off-ice fitness training. Players can choose from two packages.
The “Pro” package includes three on-ice sessions per day, a morning power skating session followed by an afternoon puck skills session and a game at the end of each day. Also included in the pro package is gym and pool time at the YMCA and one off-ice training session per day. The price for the “Pro” package is $300.00, which includes lunch.
The “Rookie” package will include two on-ice sessions, the afternoon puck skills session as well as the end of the day game and one off-ice training session. The price for the “Rookie” package is $240.00.
The camp will be divided into three different groups. Group one will be for 6- and 7-year-olds, group two for 8- to 10-year-olds and group three for 11- to 13-year-olds.
Space will be limited to 35 players per group to ensure that the proper instructor to player ratio can be maintained throughout the camp.
