To insure intensive and effective training, enrollment is limited. Students will be divided into groups of six according to age and ability. Each group will have an instructor. The student/teacher ratio is the best available at any hockey school. This ratio of six students to one highly qualified instructor is the strength of our program.
RATIO OF 6 STUDENTS TO 1 INSTRUCTOR
Students will receive a detailed evaluation of their hockey skills as well as of their attitude and team spirit. This evaluation is designed to help the student improve his or her game during the hockey season. Each instructor will have a maximum of only nine students to evaluate during each camp. This ensures that the evaluation will be accurate and helpful to the student.
