2nd Annual Jay Peak Girls Hockey Camp
3-NIGHT SLEEPOVER CAMP (August 18-21, 2016)
Jay Peak Girls Development Camp is designed to develop and enhance the fundamental skills of each camper through creative instruction in a supportive and fun environment.
Players will receive three to four hours of on-ice training each day. These sessions will teach players the necessary skills and techniques needed to become a stronger player. Our coaching staff will provide players with a bevy of hockey knowledge that they can carry with them long after camp ends. Sarah Vaillancourt Two-Time Olympic Canadian Gold Medalist, and current Stanstead Women’s Coach, and David Venditti the University of New England’s Women’s Coach will be returning with a few more Olympians and College Coaches added to the roster.
Players who attend our hockey camp will receive top level training each and every day, but even more importantly our camp will provide players with an unmatched level of fun. Our location gives our campers the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of activities including swimming, arcade, hiking, and many more fun activities, as well as an on ice scrimmage each night.
