Ron Baum’s Hockey Specialty Camps
Puck Handling and Skating Clinic
June 25-28 2018 @ Patterson Ice Center
Squirt and Pee Wee age. Must have a minimum of one year house hockey or more. Please call if you have questions.
A fun-filled, four-day summer program for players who want to learn and improve the proper skills of puck handling and specific stick handling moves (dekes) in order to progress in this sport. This is our primary foundation camp that will help players improve in these skill areas. Two and a half hours of daily on-ice instruction will be supported by off-ice sessions that will show each player how to work on puck skills off the ice, at home, during the summer months. A skating skills session is included daily to increase balance, speed and agility. A short scrimmage session on Thursday will help “build in” the skills we work each day. On the final day of camp, parents will have the opportunity to meet with Coach Baum and his staff to ask questions and gain valuable information on how to help their young hockey player properly learn these FUN-damental skills. All sessions are open for parents to observe. A camp jersey is also included.
Major Skills Emphasized
- Puck control: (Dribbling, carrying, puck protection, turning with the puck, & basic dekes)
- Understanding the concept of “split vision” when handling the puck
- Understanding the concepts of “finding open ice” and learning “patience with the puck”
- Skating for increased balance, speed & agility
Hockey Specialty Camps is a summer hockey program that emphasizes only the major skills used in the game of hockey. The difference between every one of our summer programs and most other summer hockey schools is the amount of information we cover, how we work on the skills, and the positive, on-going feedback we provide each player.
Our primary goal is to provide a noticeable improvement in each player by the time they leave us in the skills we worked on. In addition, we expect to see an increased level of confidence when players perform the skills we covered during the week.
