Protec Ponds Ice Center – Summer Hockey Camps

ProtecHockey Ponds Hockey Summer Camps are designed to be an off-season total player development and strengthening program for hockey players of all ages. Our camps have an “on” and “off-ice” hockey-specific program that gives players a competitive advantage and maximizes their physical performance through individual and group training. Each player will be evaluated both on and off the ice in order to gain insight into their individual skill set to better prepare their game for the upcoming season. On and off ice programs are designed to improve every player’s level of skill regarding shooting, skating and stick handling. All participants are taught by professional instructors in a supportive learning environment. An enriched curriculum of skill based techniques is taught through individual attention and hands on instruction.

Protec Hockey Camps are for players and goalies of all ages, with exception to our Hockey Academy Camp and Midget Hockey Camp with Patrick Alvin.   Most camps will teach general skills through each instructors favorite drills and styles.

Camps marked ♦♦♦ are Premier Hockey Camps.  Premier camps include in their registration fee a $50 premium.  This premium must be paid by all attendees including 2018-19 Ducks who are participating in this camp as their “Free Summer Camp.”

Underneath our 2018 Hockey Camp Schedule, you’ll also find information about our 1/2 day Golf and Lacrosse add-ons available during Week 2 and Week 6 of camp.

Special Guest Instructors will be visiting throughout the summer to pass along their hockey knowledge to campers.  These instructors include Eddie Hospodar and AJ Bucchino.
