The goal of the Gee-Gees girls’ hockey camps is to help each individual participant reach her full potential as a hockey player. Furthermore, it is to provide the girls with an enjoyable and memorable hockey experience through high quality instruction, led by members of the University of Ottawa’s women’s hockey team and the head coach, Yanick Evola and the assistant coach Philippe Bergeron.
The camp provides the young players the chance to learn and improve on the 5 key components of ice hockey:
Physical skills (speed, agility, coordination, balance)
Technical skills (tight turns, cross-overs, skating, shooting, puck handling)
Tactical skills (coverage, moving away from opponent, dekes, 1 vs 1, puck protection)
Psychological skills (confidence, focus, motivation)
Social skills (respect for others, fun, leadership)
Athletes will be grouped by age and by strength. A number of other activities are also scheduled throughout the camp. The younger group of girls will get a trip to the pool every day, while the older girls will develop their leadership skills through fun group workshops. Other activities include a mini-tournament, a guest speaker, and let’s not forget the fun-filled Friday Olympics and full-ice games!
Goaltenders will have the privilege to train with a highly qualified coach. The goal is to provide participants one-on-one instruction every session.
Full hockey equipment is required: helmet, shoulder pads, elbow pads, gloves, stick, pants, jock, shin pads, socks, skates.
Live the ultimate experience and learn from your favorite local role models.
