Tigers launch 2016 hockey camps
Telford Tigers will offer young fans the chance to skate with top players from the EPL at this yearâ€™s Easter and summer training camps.
The club is holding a four-day long camp from April 5th to 8th, while in the summer, there will be a camp from August 15th to 19th.
Training sessions will be attended by players from his seasonâ€™s Tigers EPL squad, with a focus on fundamental skills, speed, agility, skating and puck handling.
Tom Watkins, Head coach of Telford Tigers, GB Under-20s head coach and GB assistant coach, said: â€œHaving senior players from the club involved inÂ the camps is a great way of ensuring quality coaching from very skilled individuals.
â€œThe camps are structured in such a way that students receive the very best tuition in all areas of the game. This is a crucial stage of any young player’s career.
â€œThe camp already has a good reputation for skills and fitness, which has been built up over the last few years. I want that reputation to continue growing.â€
The Easter camp will cost Â£90 per child, which will include 90 minutes of ice time per day, starting at 6.15am. There will also be off-ice conditioning and classroom tuition.
The summer camp, meanwhile, will feature two and a half hours of ice time per day. Again, there will be off-ice conditioning and classroom tuition.
The cost of the summer camp will be Â£225, or Â£200 for siblings and Telford junior players.
Mr Watkins added: â€œWhen I was growing up, ice hockey camps in Durham were the highlight of the year for me. I want to re-create that feeling in Telford.
â€œWe are designing this yearâ€™s camps to make sure that every student works hard, but also enjoys their time. Enjoying ice hockey is fundamental for any young player.
â€œThese camps are also about building team spirit and making youngsters appreciate the importance of working within a close-knit squad.â€
