More than 60 boys and girls from around the state participated in the second Minnesota Hockey CCM High Performance Shooting Camp, on Aug. 1-4, St. Cloud State University. It was held in conjunction with the CCM High Performance Dave Peterson Goalie Camp.
“It was a great opportunity for players in our high performance programs to learn what it takes to score more goals so they can elevate their game to new levels,” said Mike MacMillan, director, Minnesota Hockey’s High Performance programs. “Players trained with top coaches and practiced their shooting skills on some of our state’s best high school goalies.”
Boys and girls who made their district/section teams in the Minnesota Hockey’s spring 15-16-17 High Performance programs were invited to participate in the camp.
“Very fun experience,” said Nikolaus Hughes, from Elk River. “You got to meet a lot of great players from around the state. Being able to shoot on some of the best goalies in the state made me a better player/skater.”
Dan Jablonic, regional manager for USA Hockey’s American Development Model was the lead instructor for the shooting camp. Click here to see other coaches at 2019 camp.
