At the Elite Hockey Camps we are looking for that individual who is a good player, but more importantly, is motivated and committed to learning and improving skills and knowledge. All activities, both on and off the ice, have been designed to contribute to the total hockey development. Players at all levels of the game experience an intense on-ice training program, integrated with an exciting off-ice dry land and fitness program. Our camps feature special lectures on preparatory and college admissions and recruiting practices, and our outstanding staff includes top college, prep and high school coaches, as well as professional hockey players. We are convinced that the most important consideration in selecting a hockey camp should be the staff. The Elite Hockey Training Centers instructors are college and prep school coaches along with collegiate and professional players who combine their teaching experience with their hockey knowledge to provide each player the best possible instruction.
