On Ice Skills Training Session - Daily
Players will receive our innovative "Progressive Phase" TOTAL Player Development Skills Training Syllabus. To maximize skills development, we teach in small groups, broken down by age & skill level. Each station highlights a critical hockey skill and allows for high repetition and 1 on 1 instruction.
4 v 4 Tournament - Daily
Players will conclude each day with a fun/competitive European Style, 4 v 4 cross-ice battle tournament. Players enjoy 2-3 games per day which will seed them into the playoffs and final day Planet Hockey Cup. Teams will consist of approximately 8 players, plus 1 goaltender. This competitive format accelerates skills growth and confidence by exposing players to repetitive game situation battles. Players will benefit from increased 'puck possession' and time directly involved with game situations.
Player Profile & Skills Assessment
We go the extra Mile! Players are observed and evaluated throughout camp and their current skill set will be documented in the form of our exclusive Electronic Player Profile, which will be emailed at the conclusion of camp. Our staff will use this 'snap-shot' to develop an Action Plan by outlining the specific areas that most need attention. Plus, each player will receive his/her own video skating through our skills assessment course, as well as, professional skills training video clips to provide an ongoing training reference. view sample video clips
Focus Sessions - Daily
We teach advanced hockey concepts. To maximize comprehension, each day begins and ends with a group focus session discussing, further explaining and outlining instructed concepts. We then pre-view the following day's curriculum.
Self-evaluation / Preparation / Responsibility / Accountability / Leadership
Planet Hockey expects each student to arrive at camp prepared to learn, work and to do the little things necessary to improve their skills. Players will learn the importance of individual and team self-evaluation, preparation, responsibility, accountability and leadership (SPRAL). Each player will receive a pre-camp electronic workbook, 4-6 weeks prior to camp, to help prepare for a challenging week of hockey training. This level of commitment will be supported by our pro-active approach to teaching & learning complex hockey concepts.
P.E.P. - Parent Education Program
You pay, you taxi...you DESERVE to understand our teaching philosophies and we encourage parents to take an educated and pro-active position within their child's hockey journey. In conjunction with your child's pre-camp preparation workbook, we will send parents a short video outlining ways to help prepare your player to maximize his/her skills development at camp. Together, we can make an incredibly positive change to your child's hockey journey.
