The focus of this camp, both on and off the ice, is to teach players the individual skills and tactics required to become a better defensive player and defenceman. A valuable skill-set in today’s game for both a forward and defenceman.

The Defence Camp provides all players (Forwards and Defence), aged 11-17, the opportunity to improve the defensive side of their game, while also enhancing skating agility, mobility and puck skills. Age groupings for this camp will be: 11/12, 13/14 and 15-17.

  • Explosive skating, agility and lateral mobility
  • High pace dynamic puck control
  • Shooting techniques and shot selection

  • Defensive concepts and IQ training
  • Positional responsibility and gameplay awareness
  • In-Zone battles and defensive responsibilities

We have over 50 years of experience.

In 2010 I was fortunate enough to play at the Okanagan Hockey Academy on the Midget Prep team. With coaches like Robert Dirk and Greg Holst it was an unbelievable year. I have to this day still never been on such a close-knit team. It was my first year of midget hockey and that meant a lot more travel. Playing in the CSSHL I got the opportunity to play in some pretty awesome spots. The league helped me learn to stay on top of school, which has helped me not only in college but also in junior. I was able to make an easy jump to junior and college academically with the help of Dave Nackoney, a guidance counselor at Penticton Secondary School who works with all the student athletes. To this day if I need anything he is always more than willing to help. It is the great staff that left such an impression on me, and made it possible for me to be where I am today.
