Leonard Hockey will be providing elite development camps for the month of April and May on Saturday afternoons at Cairns Arena. Below is all the information for our April offerings. Each camp is a single session and families are welcome to sign up for as many individual camps as they choose. Each camp is a specific skill development theme and will be highly detailed on the technique and tactical advantages of transferring the skill into real games. 

WEEK #1 CAMPS

12:00pm-1:00pm - STRIDE AND EDGE CAMP 

Stride and Edge Camp will focus on teaching players optimal posture and technique for skating. Creating positive joint angles and lean angles are crucial to efficient skating speed, agility and stability. Once posture is established, the camp will proceed into using that posture to execute proper forward stride mechanics, linear crossovers, and transition skating. 

1:15pm-2:15pm - DECEPTION CAMP - JABS/PUNCHES/CUTBACKS

This camp will focus on advanced skating deception and teach players how to utilize their outside edge to create deceptive change of directions to create more time space and opportunity to make plays.

2:30pm-3:30pm - ELITE D-SKILLS - DEFENSIVE SKATING

Defensemen will be taught highly advanced skating techniques to use when defending both on the rush and in-zone. Learning to minimize and eliminate crossovers when defending is crucial to be efficient and minimize risk of being beat.
