Mite to Squirt Transition Camp

July 18th-July 21st

8:00am:11:00am

Full Ice! (Schenectady Ice Rink)

REGISTER

The Mite to Squirt Transition Camp is a great way to prepare your Mite for moving up. The biggest change for young hockey players is switching from half-ice to full ice games. Having to learn things like offsides, icing, Denseive zone, Offensive zone, and positional concepts can be overwhelming for 8-year-olds. Joining our Transitional Camp will help ease them into the process and learn these concepts before entering into their first year of full ice.

Scoring Camp

This full-ice, high-level offensive training camp is run by Ron Kuhl. For those players who are currently in high school or junior hockey and are looking to refine offensive-specific skills. This camp will help players who are looking to take the next step in their hockey journey to junior or college hockey.

This camp will help teach you the art of scoring goals and playing an offensive game from any position. Drills will focus on shooting, dekes, patience in front of the net, and goal-scoring areas around the net. 

Defenseman’s Camp

This is a full ice, high-level D-man camp, run by Cameron Kuhl, for those players who are currently in high school or junior hockey and are looking to refine defensive-specific skills. This camp will help players who are looking to take the next step in their hockey journey to junior or college hockey.

It is intended to improve upon the basic skills that each D man already has and show them how to tweak them to be more efficient and effective at the highest level. Along with on-ice skills, we will go over topics such as how to treat your body to make it through a full season grind of 65 games, how to deal with and manage your coaching staff, and how to keep yourself safe and protected during games.

Take your skating to the next level with our Tactical Power Skating Class!

Every hockey player needs to start with the correct basic set of skills for skating, not having these basics limits you as a player. In our Tactical Power Skating program, we work players balance and stability, inside and outside edges, cross overs, and lengthening their stride!

Mite Mania – Power skating and skill development will be the main focus of this camp. A great camp for young players to further develop their skills and have fun.

Stick-Handling Camp – This is a progressive program to teach players to play with their heads up. It will help advance their puck control and the speed at which they handle the puck.

Shooting Camp – This camp will teach players how to properly shoot the puck. Players will be working on the wrist shot, the snapshot, shooting to score, and driving their feet to the net.

Bantam Transition Camp – Players will receive instruction on how to properly check and receive body contact in a controlled environment. Players will gain the skills necessary to transition to the bantam level.

All Girls Camp – Designed to give our female players a place to develop and enhance their hockey skills in a female led environment. Developed and run by Teagan Ketchum, the ALL GIRLS CAMPS aim to give a competitive edge to any young woman looking to accelerate their game!

At our Defenseman camp, you’ll learn positional skills and tactics, including defensive and offensive skills to gain the extra edge in game situations.

Backward skating, puck handling, and shooting will also be the main focus. Our drills will focus on the defenseman aspects of real gameplay. These drills will help each player understand their specific position and teach reaction with confidence.

This camp will help teach you the art of scoring goals and playing an offensive game from any position.

Drills will focus on shooting, dekes, patience in front of the net, and goal-scoring areas around the net.

 Our All skills camp will be a combination of Power Skating, Stick Handling, Shooting, and Battle Work! This is a progressive program to teach players to play with their heads up, how to properly shoot the puck, and give them Small area skills and games in a competitive environment! 


Camps include over three hours of on-ice instruction including power-skating, puck control, and shooting.  All camps will involve instruction tailored to that week. Camps also include outdoor off-ice training and hockey skills. All players will receive a jersey at the end of each camp.
