Camp starts at 5pm and will be split into two groups: Rising 6th, 7th and 8th graders AND Rising 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th graders NOTE for GOALIES: Goaltending training will be a focus at the camp, and a goaltending coach will work with goalies individually and in small groups. Goalies will get plenty of work in the net during drills, scrimmages, and individual goalie-specific sessions. Goalies pay only $100 for the camp, but must participate as a goaltender to receive the reduced price.
