Ron Baum’s Ice Hockey Puck Handling, Scoring, & Skating Camp, July, Grand Rapids, Michigan
July 23-27 2018 @ Walker Ice and Fitness
2nd year Squirt and Pee Wee age. Must have a minimum of one year house hockey or more. Please call if you have questions.
A combination camp for players who are looking to advance their puck skills while also focusing on improving their scoring touch. The camp will focus on increasing every player’s stick handling and puck protection skills, becoming more patient with the puck, proper shot or deke selection, and how to become a more consistent goal scorer. In addition, this eighteen (18) hour on-ice program will also include an off-ice skills component and will focus attention on the techniques of shooting, using fakes, deflections, and rebounds to score goals. We will also cover what shot to use in specific situations. A detailed, individual player evaluation and jersey are also included in this camp.
Major Skills Emphasized
- Puck handling in open ice and “in traffic”
- Puck protection skills along the boards and in open ice
- Shooting skills and shot selection
- Fakes, deflections and rebounding skills
- Skating speed and agility; skating techniques when shooting specific shots.
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.
