Join me in Rochester, New York, USA for an advanced level hockey player skills development single day camp! This camp features training in the advanced areas of hockey! The iTrain Hockey Rochester Advanced Camp (ages 8 to Adult) will undoubtedly be the best hockey development camp you’ve ever attended! At this camp, you will develop your skating agility with puck control, deking and offensive + defensive 1-on-1 battling skills. Please feel free to invite any of your hockey friends or teammates to join you in signing up for the camp!
If you’d also like to sign up for the preliminary skills training camp taking place on the same day, please also purchase a spot in the Rochester Youth Camp (ages 8-10) from 11am-2pm or the Older Camp (ages 11-adult) from 2-5pm. Power skating, puck handling and shooting classes will be conducted then. Hope to see you there too! Note: It is not required to participate in either of these camps as a prerequisite in order to attend this Advanced Camp. If you have lots of energy and want to spend the day training and learning every skill the game demands then you should consider attending both. Bring lunch and snacks, extra pair of socks and put in the work with Sean. “Every day is a good day for hockey.” – Mario Lemieux.
