Suter's Hockey Camp: Individual Skills, Fundamentals & Situational Development


Each day the "Campers" will work on basic fundamentals like skating, passing and shooting by using many different full ice drills and small area games. As well as over all hockey concepts like the breakdown of a line rush on both the offensive/defensive side on how a player can create space on offense and take away space on the defensive side. They will have time on ice with quality coaches, like Ryan Suter, as well as classroom lecture and off ice workouts. We believe kids learn the best when they are having fun and excited to be on the ice, and we want players to work outside of their comfort zone by trying things that might not be their strongest skill so we can work on whatever it is to improve it. This will be a positive experience for any of the kids who attend and a highlight of their summer.
