Hockey School Itinerary:
The days are full days from approximately 8:00am - 4:00pm, however, times may vary depending on registration numbers. A full schedule will be emailed out to each participant closer to the start date of the camp. Each girl will be on the ice twice a day as well as learn valuable off-ice hockey instruction also twice a day.  Girls will be supervised all day and assistance in getting dressed in their hockey equipment will be available for the younger groups.

On Ice: Athletes will have two ice times a day where they will learn to skate, pass, stickhandle and shoot. Every session will also have a dedicated goalie coach. Groups will have a max of 30 skaters and 4 goaltenders. There will also be two scrimmage games throughout the week during their Wednesday afternoon on ice and their Friday morning on ice.

Off Ice: Athletes will be coached and taught by certified training professionals. Depending on the athletes age group, they will have several hockey off-ice training sessions as well as be introduced to other athletic activities. We feel it's very important hockey players be well rounded athletes.

Lunch: Lunch is not provided, but can be purchased from the canteen at Gateway Recreation Centre. The canteen does not have many healthly options so we strongly recommend packing a healthy lunch and snacks in order to help the athletes stay focussed for the entire day.

Ages 7-17. Beginners to Elite players all welcome. Groups will be based on age, however, parents can always change the group assigned to them depending on skill, need for carpool or other requirement.

Instructors: You will not get more experienced instructors at any other female hockey school.

Sami Jo Small: Camp owner. Three time Olympic Goaltender. Sami Jo is a graduate of Stanford University and has her Advanced Coaching level with Hockey Canada. She currently plays for the Toronto Furies of the Canadian Women's Hockey League.
