F.E. Hockey Toronto International Main Camp
Our Toronto International main camp returns to Scotiabank Pond for a third year! This years camp is loaded with some exciting new features to bring your game to the next level. Each day will feature 2 explosive on ice sessions, 1 off ice session with FITS Toronto in their specialized gym on the second floor of the arena, and 1 off ice stickhandling session. Also new this year is a chance to learn and try new skateblade profiles throughout the week with Prosharp.
At check-in the players will receive their F.E. Hockey pro style jersey and F.E. Hockey off ice t-shirt. There will be a lunch break between the off ice sessions and the second on ice session, players are recommended to bring their own lunch or eat at the restaurant at the arena. There will also be fruit and bottled water available in the dressing rooms as a snack between sessions.
Everyday starts with 20-30 minutes of power skating, biomechanics, and dynamic edge work. Players will develop an understanding of how to efficiently carry their speed, generate power, and enhance their multidirectional movement. After warmup the training will shift towards the major skating component of the day. Everyday of training will also feature game speed stick handling/moves, passing/receiving, and goal scoring techniques. Every player in camp will have lots of individual dialogue and work with one of our coaches. Camp groups are capped at 22 players with 4-5 coaches on the ice. Our coaches will focus on getting quality reps from the athletes, and strive to help each athlete fully understand the concepts essential to their development.
Off Ice training with FITS:
We are FITS Toronto, the Sport Science facility located inside of Scotiabank Pond, we're excited to bring our Integrated Athletic Development System in partnership with the F.E. Hockey Camp. The partnership is based on a shared philosophy of how to develop motor control for injury prevention, skill development and ultimately for sport performance. For this camp, we want to share insights and data between off-ice and on-ice coaches to reduce injury risk and to improve sport development. By having a detailed Athletic Development Motor Control Framework and Key Standards we have a road-map that is used for each athlete during our Integrated On-Ice Programs. This allows us to maximize off-ice sessions during the camp.
