Program Features

on-ice training

The on ice portion of camp will consist of instruction on all of the fundamental skills in addition to age-appropriate concepts tailored to all three age groups. Each player will be trained in forward and backward skating (focusing on balance, agility, edges, turning and acceleration), puck handling, playmaking, scoring, and defense. In this high-tempo four-day camp, all players will be able to improve upon these individual and team skills through structured drills, small-area stations and mini games.

 

Each session will be led by one or more members of our experienced head coaches, including Megan Keller, Andie Anastos, Makenna Newkirk, and goalie coach Jessica Convery. We will be limiting our class sizes to ensure maximum individualized instruction in a small group/work-station environment.

All players will receive a camp jersey!
off-ice training/wellness

Learn about the importance of a dynamic warm-up and getting your body ready for competition. The girls will be guided through the same warm-up that the U.S. Women’s National Team does before practices and games, followed up with fun exercises, races and games to help improve body movements that translate to on-ice play. The session will wrap up with recovery, stretching and a mobility/yoga circle.

 

The girls will also hear from 2018 Winter Olympics Team USA dietitian Carrie Aprik about the importance of constantly staying active, nutrition, hydration and recovery – keys to fueling your body as an elite athlete. Also learn how to develop healthy habits and what those look like.

'Dreams & Goals' Workshop

The purpose of this workshop is to empower leaders of the future by teaching them how to set powerful goals that will bring them closer to their greatest dreams. The girls will be led through an interactive workshop that shows them the importance of chasing their own dreams and how to deal with adversity along the way. They will also have the opportunity to learn, see and hear from some of the very leaders and trailblazers of our sport. “You have to see it to be it.”

 

Also, hear about Megan’s journey to the Olympic Games: what it takes and what she’s learned… so far, as she shares her story of successes and failures along the way. There will also be a Q&A session held for players and parents, and an opportunity to take pictures with her gold medal from the 2018 Olympics!

proceeds from this camp will go to support the growth of girls hockey in Michigan.
