The Katie Weatherston Hockey School provides the tools needed to improve skills and raise awareness of opportunities available to both girls and boys through sport. Founded in 2005, our goal is to offer players and goalies a well-organized, fun, and educational camp at an affordable cost. Our 4:1 player to coach ratio creates an optimal environment for development. At the end of the camp, each participant gets to select a PRIZE from our prize table to celebrate their hard work and their commitment to improving their game. We also give out the following individual awards: Edge Award, Most Improved, Hardest Shot, Dirty Dangles, Sweetest Skater, Off-ice Warrior.
We also put together a motivational video each week so players can see themselves in action and share their special memories with their families! The video also helps remind players of the proper techniques they need to continue to do to help bring their game to the next level.
On-Ice Instruction (3 hours / day):
Our camp focuses on teaching individual technique: Forwards/backwards stride, edges, shooting, stick handling, passing, checking, puck protection, skill stations
*Goalie's will have a goalie coach. There are only 3 goalie spots per ice session (3:1 Goalie to Coach ratio maximum)
Off-Ice Instruction (2.5 hours / day):
Stick handling, shooting, agility, strength, speed, balance, core, chalk talk, video, dynamic warm-up, plyometrics, skating imitations & slide board, resistance training, goal setting, nutrition mindfulness, deep breathing, circuit training, a motivational talk with Katie and pictures with her gold medals and the 2010 Olympic Torch!
*Camps focus on the fundamental skills of hockey and are open to all skills levels (except the competitive camp). We group players according to skill level and age. Each session is geared towards individual instruction and each player is coached/pushed to their individual skill level. The Off-ice sessions includes a majority of Katie's National Team's off-ice training program!
