Camp Overview: Our goal is to give you three days of pro level coaching and constant personal feedback, so you’d know what you have to do in order to take your game to the next level and to preprate you for the up coming season, so you’d take #1 spot right away. This camp is going to be more than “just goalie practice”. Here are a couple reasons:
1. This camp is all about on ice training so we are not going to waste energy on dryland training because at camps you want to learn to stop the puck better, not how to jump and run. That is why during summer camp students can do dryland train with me (Matti) in Espoo for free and on ice power skating in Lappeenranta for cost of skating fee, which is 4 euros. If you come to Lappeenranta by train I can pick you up at the station and bring you back.
2. You will get a detailed workout plan for the summer which you can easily modifie to fit on your schedule.
3. There will be coaches from various teams so you will get exposure and if you come from outside of Finland there is a chance to traing with or tryout for teams since the season begins in the first week of August.
