August is the perfect summer month.
Running a hockey camp in August means that things are winding down after few great months instructing aspiring athletes who have been working hard to take their game to the next level.
Of course it never gets old walking out of the cool rink into the hot and humid summer air.
And in August, the excitement of the summer months is turning to thoughts of Labor Day, school, football and of course the start of another hockey season.
Yes, these are the dog days of summer and they are great times for hockey players.
All of the instruction received over the summer can be put to use during your personal training in preparation for the season.
Shooing pucks with proper form and increased velocity.
Stickhandling with your head up and practicing your new dekes and moves.
We really enjoy watching players in August as they have grown over the past few months, both as hockey players and also in height!
As you finish out your summer vacation we encourage you to continue working hard on everything that you learned at hockey camp this summer.
Players leave camp with the tools they need to become a better hockey player, and we sincerely hope that you use those tools each and every day in practice.
Repetition is a key ingredient to mastering skills so take the time and bring the energy to your training and preseason preparations.
Work the same skills over and over again until you are comfortable executing at full speed.
Enjoy the final weeks of summer and we look forward to keeping up with you this season!
