SKILL DEVELOPMENT CAMPS
All HEAT camps are appropriately paced to challenge all skaters with drills/activities that are innovative and unique. Drill progression and repetition will allow each player to be an active participant in their own skill development. The overall development as a complete player is directly related to their skating ability. Our goal is to make each player a stronger competitor with increased confidence in their abilities.
MOST Camps will include a HEAT Jersey.
