The CCM Minnesota Hockey High Performance Dave Peterson Goalie and Shooting Camps are scheduled to take place August 1-4, 2019 at St. Cloud State University. The specialized camps will provide over 100 players who participated in the CCM High Performance programs with an opportunity to receive detailed instruction on techniques and concepts for critical skills.
“This is the second year we have offered a combined, high-level training opportunity like this for players who are part of our CCM High Performance programs,” said Steve Carroll, Director of Minnesota Hockey’s High Performance Goalie and Shooting Camps. “The camp continues to grow in popularity as participants realize the importance and benefits of working on their individual skills during the summer in a challenging and competitive learning environment.”
The CCM HP Dave Peterson Goalie Camp, now in its 15th year, offers four days of intense goalie development, including 12 hours of on-ice training and 12 hours of off-ice instruction.
The CCM HP Shooting Camp was launched in 2018 and is expanding to reach 50% more players this year. The Shooting Camp is open to boys and girls who make their district/section teams in Minnesota Hockey’s Spring HP 15-16-17 programs and is designed to provide players the opportunity to hone their scoring skills against some of the state’s best high school goalies.
“This is a great opportunity for players in our High Performance programs to focus on specific skills so they can elevate their game to new levels,” said Mike MacMillan, Minnesota Hockey’s High Performance Director. “Players will train with top coaches and practice their skills against great competition.”
Coaches from USA Hockey, Minnesota Hockey and Minnesota college and high school programs will lead the instruction. The camp will also feature current college hockey players as counselors.
In addition to the on-ice training, players will experience classroom presentations from college hockey coaches, sports performance experts, an Olympic gold medalist, social media use, dryland training and more.
