Defense w/Jeff... 

PA Goalie camp... 

Shooting is very rarely worked on and players are never taught all the necessary tricks to “Own Goaltenders”



Since its inception in 2007 we have sold out each summer and have had great reviews and lots of improvement in the shooting department. Campers can’t believe all the little tricks associated with shooting.  Goalies Beware!!!

  1. Quick release-getting the shot off before the goalie gets set.
  2. Deceiving the goalie- Showing top glove with the angle of your blade and then rolling the wrists to shoot low blocker. Closing the blade appearing to shoot low before opening it up to go top shelf. The goalie must respect the angle of the blade, which gives the shooter the advantage.
  3. Shooting off the wing
  4. Shooting for rebounds- where to shoot when on a bad angle or from the wing to create a rebound for a player driving to the net.
  5. Shooting off your front foot- providing a quicker release when in the slot or in traffic
  6. Shooting in stride- shooting while going full speed
  7. Point shots- how to get shots through and avoid getting your shot blocked.
  8. Backhand shots
  9. Scoring in tight- players must get the puck up quick as the goalie slides from one post to the other
  10. One Timers- How and when to take them
  11. Receiving a pass and having the puck in a position to shoot immediately. Al Macinnis was the best.
  12. Fake shot/pass
  13. Shooting off balance and off of both feet
  14. Deflections
  15. Learning how to get open and come in and out of scoring areas
  16. Roofing the puck
  17. Want the puck, demand the puck!

The kids will do shooting circuits for 3 hours per day and 1 hour of intense skill work (stickhandling, passing, skating)

Daily Excursions in beautiful Lake Tahoe:

The accommodations are at The beautiful luxurious Lakeland Village Beach & Mountain Resort which is on the beach with an outdoor pool and within a short walk to the rink and recreation complex of South Lake Tahoe.

There will be one escorted hiking expedition to enjoy and experience the beauty of Lake Tahoe. The gondola ride to the top of the mountain was another big thrill for the kids. Heavenly's high-altitude Adventure Peak is located at the top of the Gondola at Heavenly.

The first part of the adventure is simply getting there! The 2.4-mile ride up the mountainside in the Gondola is one trip you'll never forget. The eight-passenger cabins take guests 2.4 miles up the mountain in 12 minutes while they enjoy views of Lake Tahoe.

Just when it seems the ride can't get any better, guests arrive at The Deck - a 14,000 square foot mid-station observation platform. Located at 9,123 feet, guests are treated to views of the Carson Valley, Desolation Wilderness and shore-to-shore views of Lake Tahoe.
