The Jack Skille Hockey Academy is proud to announce that we will be running a two-day high intensity, high altitude, NHL style hockey camp December 30th & 31st , 2019. Our team of elite coaches are motivated and excited to help your athlete learn proper hockey fundamentals and develop and polish skill sets that will be utilized to fully develop as a top tier hockey player.
The Holiday Invitational will focus on teaching the athlete how to become a stronger, well balanced hockey player through our use of power-skating techniques and focused individual skill group ice sessions. Power skating and skills sessions will be instructed by all of our coaches. The athletes will have a one hour ice session then an off-ice dryland/lecture/snack/hydration session, followed by another one hour ice session. The afternoon skills session will be broken up into group stations and half-ice that will focus on teaching various skills that are needed in order to be a select hockey player. The combined knowledge and teaching ability of the coaching staff and the athletes hard dedicated work, players will walk away from our camp with a higher hockey IQ and skill set. Our coaches will also provide the players with the information they need to continue to grow and develop as a hockey player. Lectures and chalk talks will provide insight of the effort and dedication it takes to reach the highest levels of hockey. Talks about working hard on and off the ice, to the nutrition they need for their developing bodies will be covered to help round out a complete game. These coaches have reached the highest levels in their sports for a reason, they are going to share all the secrets they can to develop these hockey players.
