Hockey school is the perfect way to for the avid hockey player to spend summer. The skills he or she hones in hockey school (or hockey camp) will help bring his or her NHL dreams closer. In fact, there are very few pro hockey players who did not go to hockey school as kids. And by the way, many of the best hockey schools are run by professionals from the NHL.
At a hockey school, your child will hone skills in stickhandling, playmaking, shooting, goaltending and more.
Finding the right hockey camp
Hockey schools are about an even split between overnight camps (residential camps) and day camps. The advantage of an overnight camp is that your child is totally immersed in hockey for the week.
Consider the following as you search for a hockey camp or school:
What refences can they offer you?
What level of commitment do instructors have? If they advertise the presence of one or several pro hockey players, how often are those players really present at the school?
Apart from hockey skills, what else does the hockey school teach about conditioning, training, fitness, etc?
