Troy Summer Defense Camp ~ Group B

ABOUT THIS CAMP

CAMP FOCUS

4D HOCKEY DEFENSE CAMP

The 4D Hockey Defense Camp is designed and geared towards defensemen that want to take the next step in their game. Whether you are an offensive or a stay at home defenseman, this camp will teach the player how to excel in both areas.  Our instructors will be hands-on, teaching proper technique, pivoting, and handling the puck in pressure situations. Over the course of 6 weeks, players will skate 1.5 hours per day, twice a week developing skills such as:

  • Skating:  power skating, edges, pivoting, crossovers and backwards skating.
  • Situational Awareness: how to assess the perfect gap, how to transition into offense and how to join the rush correctly
  • Puck Control: Stick-handling, escape moves, using the net
  • Passing: hard/crisp passes and saucer passes
  • Shooting: walking the blue, opening your hips, one-timers, slap shots, wrist shots
  • Defensive Positioning: angling, stick on puck, containing and hitting
  • We will also hold 30 minute video sessions once a week for the player to visually see these principles in action led by OHL Amateur Scout Ethan Range.
