Thank you to Victoria Minor Hockey for the support in getting Week 2 officially launched!

  • We work in small groups divided by age and ability to maximize the experience for every player.
  • Our morning ice sessions give attention to individual puck skills, skating, and decision making.
  • The Afternoons are divided into 50% individual skills and 50% full ice controlled scrimmages.
  • Each day consists of 2 on ice sessions, 1 fitness & games session, and finishes in the water park, a true camp favourite after a long day.
