Why is this camp is designed the way it is?!

This camp is designed like a class at school and takes into account research recommendations into how youth learn best.

Prior to each practice players will have a classroom session on topics and concepts for that practice.  These classroom sessions are to be setup like a real class with a topic lesson, video examples and quizzes/tests for player review. Throughout the course of the week, each lesson/practice will build off the previous connecting all concepts together.

Players will also be provided access to video database of lessons the week prior to camp starts. This is to act as the players textbook. Players are encouraged to go through and watch the lessons for camp so they have a base of knowledge before attending. Just like in school, teachers assign students readings from a textbook before going to class to introduce them to topics for that day.

After each day, players should go home re-watch lesson videos and complete the lesson quizzes (homework).  Research shows when a student reviews a topic learned within 24 hours, they are more likely to retain what they learned. 

After a base of skills is built, controlled scrimmages and scrimmage drills will be used to connect concepts/skills together and directly to games (Practice Tests). 

The 2 games during the week are the players tests. This gives players the opportunity to use skills from practice in real games.  The video from these games will be broken down with voiced corrections (test correction) for players to review and learn from after.

This camp aims to teach players how to “think the game,” develop a base and make better decisions using their skills more effectively.  To do that players have to become a student of the game.  This program will offer players every opportunity to become that student and improve their hockey IQ.  Practices and concepts will be age dependent with each practice building off the one prior. 

Learning is a skill!  Teaching is a science!
