The Pond Summer Hockey program is an intense hockey skating and skills program that is for hockey players of any skill level who are serious about taking their game to the next level. Our camps focus on building proficiency in HOCKEY skating and skills instead of just "drilling" (stationary coach, whistling kids through drills). We are serious about developing our athletes with our low athlete to trainer ratio and their results show it.
