Our Defense camp also includes the teaching camp in the camp fee. Defense specialists arrive a day before the teaching camp players and spend 4 sessions learning defensive specific skills. These skills include the footwork, recovery, positioning, the lift check, the poke check, holds, long pole stick work and working within a defense and with your goalie. As the main camp starts drills, defensive players will be integrated into the teaching camp along with the defense coaches. The play at our camp is controlled and structured. We do not allow body checking at any time during camp. Over aggressive play is dealt with immediately. All players will be given an evaluation sheet at the conclusion of the camp that can be used as a guideline for what you need to improve.
Our Defense camp has 2 divisions
Division 1 - High School
This division is for players in grades 9 - 12.
This division handles all levels of experience, from novice to advanced. If you are a 9th grader that is brand new to the game and are struggling in division 1, we can move you to division 2 if the staff and the Director feel it will benefit the player. All players in this division will be assigned to a team for game play at the end of the week. All players will participate in skill contests during one of the sessions, for awards.
Division 2 - Middle/Elementary School
This division is for players in grades 4 - 8.
We have some of the best teaching coaches in this division. This division handles all levels of experience, from novice to advanced as well. If an 8th grader is very advanced in his skills, he can be moved up to division 1 to play against better players. The staff and the Director make it their mission to get each player in the right place so they properly learn and have some success.. All players in this division will be assigned to a team for game play at the end of the week. All Division 2 players will participate in skill contests during one of the sessions, for awards.
Our Director and our staff go above and beyond what most camps do in regards to evaluating player skill level. It is vital to the player that he is in the right group when learning. Our first 4 sessions at camp are spent doing defense specific skills. The fifth session is spent evaluating players during drills so we can match them with the proper teaching groups and move them immediately if their experience and skill level dictates. This behind the scenes discipline is what sets us apart from the rest. We hope to see your son at the Defense camp this summer. Take a chance with us, we won't let you down.
