“We see the craziness that overcomes hockey and youth sports. There’s a lot of focus on those top kids, and keeping up with the joneses. If you want to get that feeling of ‘here’s why I do this’ again, you see that again at a camp like this. These 9 to 13 year olds, they’re all out there with kids of similar abilities, so they’re all having fun. The innocence comes back, because you know that these kids aren’t doing this with aspirations to make the NHL. Hockey seems fun, I want to do it, and they go out and do it.”
The program also helps overcome some of the misconceptions about the sport. Not every practice is at 7 am on a Sunday morning, and not every family has to dish out the extra costs to register for hockey schools. There are programing options that exist based on the level you want to play, and the time commitment you want to make each week.
