3 ELITE Camps in 1
TOTAL Player Development
EpicCamps provide Planet Hockey students with the most COMPLETE hockey skills training & innovative training methods available: POWER SKATING, STICKHANDLING and SCORING & TEAM PLAY.
All New ELITE EpicCamp format
All 2013 Summer programs are ELITE workshops specifically designed for enthusiastic players who are serious about improving their hockey skills. These ELITE camps follow the same format and methods we use when training NHL and European professional players.
What we expect from each student - "Train like a pro". Players should arrive each day excited about the opportunity to mesh their dreams and hard work with Planet Hockey's globally acclaimed hockey skills training program. Planet Hockey and our student’s parents are committed, while players need to move from simply being involved to taking responsibility for their own skills development. We help ensure a fun and challenging camp with maximum skill development through the Planet Hockey Pre-camp Preparation Workbook.
Who should attend? Players of ALL skill levels who want the opportunity to train like the pros! This is an ELITE camp open to players who demonstrate the commitment level above. We feel that any player who wants to improve and who is committed to that result will benefit greatly from our professional training approach. Are you ready to take the Planet Hockey ELITE EpicCamp challenge this summer?

On Ice Skills Training Session - Daily
Players will receive our innovative "Progressive Phase" TOTAL Player Development Skills Training Syllabus. To maximize skills development, we teach in small groups, broken down by age & skill level. Each station highlights a critical hockey skill and allows for high repetition and 1 on 1 instruction.
4 v 4 Tournament - Daily
Players will conclude each day with a fun/competitive European Style, 4 v 4 cross-ice battle tournament. Players enjoy 2-3 games per day which will seed them into the playoffs and final day Planet Hockey Cup. Teams will consist of approximately 8 players, plus 1 goaltender. This competitive format accelerates skills growth and confidence by exposing players to repetitive game situation battles. Players will benefit from increased 'puck possession' and time directly involved with game situations.
Player Profile & Skills Assessment
We go the extra Mile! Players are observed and evaluated throughout camp and their current skill set will be documented in the form of our exclusive Electronic Player Profile, which will be emailed at the conclusion of camp. Our staff will use this 'snap-shot' to develop an Action Plan by outlining the specific areas that most need attention. Also, you will receive a 1 hour training DVD as an ongoing training reference. "He/She with the least amount of weaknesses...wins". more >>
Focus Sessions - Daily
We teach advanced hockey concepts. To maximize comprehension, each day begins and ends with a group focus session discussing, further explaining and outlining instructed concepts. We then pre-view the following day's curriculum.
Self-evaluation / Preparation / Responsibility / Accountability / Leadership
Planet Hockey expects each student to arrive at camp prepared to learn, work and to do the little things necessary to improve their skills. Players will learn the importance of individual and team self-evaluation, preparation, responsibility, accountability and leadership (SPRAL). Each player will receive a pre-camp electronic workbook upon registration to help prepare for a challenging week of hockey training. This level of commitment will be supported by our pro-active approach to teaching & learning complex hockey concepts.
P.E.P. - Parent Education Program
You pay, you taxi...you DESERVE to understand our teaching philosophies and we encourage parents to take an educated and pro-active position within their child's hockey journey. In conjunction with your child's pre-camp preparation workbook, we will send parents a short video outlining ways you can help prepare your player to maximize their skills development at camp. Together, we can make a huge difference in your child's hockey journey.
