Kent Valley Accelerated Training Day Camp 2018 Off and Running

By KVHA, 06/28/18, 4:30PM PDT


Kent Valley Ice Centre, Kent, WA., Tuesday, June 28, 2018 - Kent Valley’s Summer Accelerated Training Day Camp 2018 is off and running.  The summer program runs Monday, Wednesday and Friday, June 18th thru August 17th and is directed by Les Grauer. 

In 8 short weeks, this program offers more practice time than a normal winter season!!  It also provides a variety of activities that make it a summer of fun for everyone. Today’s athletes are more skilled than ever. The Accelerated Training Day Camp Program provides players of all ages with the ice time necessary to improve their hockey skills. Every day, players get 3 or more hours of ice-time including two different skill sessions run by our experienced coaches. Along with the on-ice drills, the off-ice program incorporates a series of dry land exercises. This includes off-ice stickhandling to develop hand eye co-ordination and improve puck skills, and soccer to develop agility and conditioning.  In addition, the day campers have time to have fun around the facility playing air hockey, pool, mini-golf, batting cages, and street hockey. The 9-hour day camp has it all (for less than $6.50/hour).

Coaching Staff - Our hockey instructors have years of experience playing hockey at a high level, including NCAA division I and III college hockey, and every level of juniors. In our on-ice skills sessions, our coaches implement drills that have been proven to develop players and provide individual feedback to ensure players progress.
