Hockey is fast, exciting, fun, and demanding. You need great skating, passing and shooting skills. And while some players have natural skills, every player — from kids to pros — has to train hard on and off the ice to maintain the fitness level this game demands. A big part of the CCM Skills Camp is the training program. For both on- and off-ice training, each one-day camp features a team of professional coaches to teach Pee-Wees how to develop and maintain the physical and mental strength needed to be well and play well every day.
