Two Sessions — Or Combine Them Into a Full Day!


For both forwards and defensemen — we are confident that you will gain knowledge and skills to be a better player on both sides of the puck!


Morning Session:
Offensive Pro Skills & Skating for Forwards & Defenders

8:45-12:00 pm


What do you do when you or your team have the puck? Can you skate to initiate an attack down the wing, start or jump into a rush to create an odd man advantage, quickly release from a corner battle to attack or crash the net? In Ty's "Offensive Skating and Skills Program" you will learn and develop the skating and puck possession skills to be successful on the "O" side of the puck.
  • 8:45 Check in
  • 8:55 to 9:40 - Off-ice seminar/video to discuss and understand daily skills development
  • 10:00 to 10:55 - Offensive skating development
  • 11:05 to Noon - Offensive game skills development

Afternoon Session:
Defensive Pro Skills & Skating for Forwards & Defenders

1:00-4:15 pm


What do you do when your team does not have the puck? Can you challenge a puck carrier to ride them off the play anywhere in the rink, properly get into the backcheck to minimize the opponent's attacking options, keep the competition from gaining control of the high scoring areas in your end? In Ty's "Defensive Skating and Skills Program" you will learn and develop the skating and defending skills to be successful on the "D" side of the puck.
  • 1:00 Check in
  • 1:10 to 1:55 - Off-ice seminar/video to discuss and understand daily skills development
  • 2:15 to 3:10 - Defensive skating development
  • 3:20 to 4:15 - Defensive game skills development

Or, combine both sessions into a full-day camp!
8:45 am - 4:15 pm
