ThePro Ambitions Battle Campis the signature Pro Ambitions Camp designed by Jeff to encompass game simulated battles. Hockey is a series of 1 on 1 battles all over the ice. Players will leave this camp with awesome skill development, a better understanding of the game and most importantly - knowing how to battle for loose pucks. This is also the curriculum that Jeff has copyrighted/trademarked and sold to many youth hockey organizations nationwide. He is extremely proud of this unique and necessary conceptual approach to teaching. It is a compilation of the best advice, drills, and game theory from his career.
This camp is for all levels of players whether you're a mite b (like his son) or Midget. (We suggest you have 1 year of active playing under your belt). We are the masters of "Circuit Training" and small area games, the kids are always moving and always being corrected with lots of repetitions in a fun and spirited environment which fosters self-confidence and great self-esteem.
Pro Ambitions Goalie Campsare committed to providing the best goaltending training available. We went after the nation’s top young goalie coach - and got him!
Since Goalie Coach Mike Buckley has joined the Pro Ambitions team, our goalie training program has undergone innovative, new changes, selling out week after week, as a result. Under Mike Buckley’s curriculum, students are exposed to today’s most modern technique. As a former Division 1. and recently retired professional goaltender, Coach Buckley’s teachings has helped produced several NHL draft picks, five Division 1. scholarships, two major junior draft picks, and two U-17 National Development Team selections.
In addition to his role as Director of Goaltending for Pro Ambitions, Mike is also the UMass-Amherst Goaltending Coach (Hockey East).
Mike Buckley has developed an intuitive and very successful training curriculum that until now has only been available through his highly sought after private instruction. Validation - the goalie needs to be the mentally strongest cool cat on the team, also a honed skill we will set the foundation for. Drill training in the following key areas: breakaways, wraparounds and deflecting screens. Pro Ambitions Hockey, Inc. is now considered a goalie training powerhouse.
Intimate groups make us tops! Student to instructor ratio is 3:1 and sometimes 2:1. Boarding camps feature 4 hours of ice time daily. It is most important for goaltenders to work in small groups because the instruction needs to be tailored to each goalie's individual style. We only accept 8-10 goalies per camp. Every summer season, the goalie camps sell out quickly and we will not deviate from our intimate setting formula.
