Shape Up For A Super Summer

Posted by Greg Carter

With the youth hockey season winding down, it’s time to start planning a super summer!

Summer hockey will be here faster than a NHL’ers slapshot. The question being asked around hockey rinks everywhere is, where and when are you going to train this summer?

In past Player Tips articles we have talked about the fact that to be the best, hockey players need to set goals like the best. Based on the success – and failures – this hockey season, what are your goals for training this summer? How committed are you to taking your game to the next level.

In a recent article a top player was being asked about their incredible shot and ability to score goals with pinpoint accuracy. This players response was simple: “I shoot more pucks than anyone that I know.”

An old coach used to say that for everyone one great hockey player, I’ll show you 100 that had the same ability, but didn’t work on fundamental skill development and do what it takes during the summer to become a better hockey player.

Summer Training

If you are ready to shape up for a super summer and take your game to the next level, we invite you to train with us at one of our hockey camps located across 11 states. We have summer hockey camps in Alaska, Connecticut, Illinois, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Vermont, Virginia and Rhode Island. 

Our summer hockey school is designed to build your fundamental skills. Our camps include Total Skill Development Camps, Skating/Edge/Stickhandling Camps, Defenseman/Shooting and more. 

All of the Greg Carter European Hockey Training Camps focus on individual skill development to help students become more complete players. Through our unique drills, students will improve their control, agility, reflex, technique, edge, and muscle retention skills. Our approach enables our students to learn each skill in a controlled environment and then apply speed and game situations to complete the lessons.

Good Luck!

We wish you the best of luck with the rest of your season and thank you for reading. Please reach out with any questions and we hope to see you at the rink soon!
