Playmaking and Goal Scoring | Week 1

At the Northern Hockey School, our Playmaking and Goal Scoring Camp is designed to help players develop a competitive edge by improving their skills in a fun, supportive, and challenging environment. Our program is designed to provide hockey players with a strong understanding of foundational skills, such as power skating, skating with the puck, passing, and shooting techniques. It will also help to develop more advanced skills such as shot selection, tips and re-directs and establishing a net front presence. Our program uses personalized instruction to help each player build confidence, learn new skills and develop into a more well-rounded player.    
Key skills will be taught at an age and skill appropriate level that will challenge each player. On-ice skills taught will consist of the following:
  • Shooting
  • Passing
  • Tipping Shots and Net Front Presence
  • Shot Selection
  • Evasive Manœuvres
The Northern Hockey School has been providing quality player instruction in Smithers, BC circa 2004. The school is coached and operated by individuals, with ties to the community, who have been involved with hockey at all levels for the majority of their lives. The Northern Hockey School youth camps are open to players of all genders, and skill levels with birth years falling between 2009-2016. Three separate youth camps are run concurrently split into birth years of 2009-2011, 2012-2013, and 2014-16. Each age group will receive two ice times per day, a dry land training session, a dry surface skill development session and a non-hockey sport game/education session. There will be time set aside each day for a snack and lunch. All players will receive a Northern Hockey School jersey at camp registration. The final day will consist of a game.
