2018 Fall Pre-Tryout Camps

2018 Fall Pre-Tryout Camp

2018 Camp Information and Registration NOW AVAILABLE


Program Overview


Our Fall Pre-Tryout Camps are perfect for players looking to get ready for tryouts and their season. Camp is designed to get players back into hockey mode, by putting them through drills that focus on skating / puck skills and game situations as well as full ice scrimmages to prepare them for evaluations. We focus on what the evaluators are looking for in tryouts making sure the player is 100% prepared.

There are 4 main reasons why our Pre-Tryout Camp is successful at preparing players for tryouts:

  1. Improved Skills and Improved Confidence.
    We run high tempo skill drills giving players the proper instruction and motivation.
  2. We get you in Game Shape.
    Players are pushed to give an all out effort daily with hockey specific drills and situations, preparing them to play strong throughout the entire tryout process.
  3. Improved Compete Level!
    Players will be taught what it takes and how to be successful in winning the on-ice battles
  4. Dryland Training
    Focus on specific individual skills that are hockey specific in order to improve the overall player on the ice.
