2021 PACIFIC CHALLENGE
CELEBRATING 27 YEARS OF PLAYER DEVELOPMENT
August 2nd-6th, 2021
Train to play at a higher level
Are you seeking the challenge to advance your hockey skills and execution on the ice? Do you want to reach your full potential and prepare for next season at the same time? Then the Pacific Challenge Camp is for you. Under the guidance of skilled professionals, players of all ages and skill sets can take their game to the next level and have a blast doing it!
The Pacific Challenge consists of 10 hours of on ice instruction through small area games, skating, stick handling, shooting, passing, and competitive situations. We select relevant themes and create effective curriculum to increase all player’s athleticism, confidence, decision making, and overall performance. Our on-ice sessions are organized to increase repetitions and puck touches that a conventional scrimmage or summer league cannot offer.
Our dryland program will consist of 8 hours of off ice training, including 2 additional hours of classroom sessions. Dryland training will focus on increasing a player’s agility, foot speed, and explosiveness with an element of conditioning included. Classroom sessions will focus on creating connections between game situations and the game-like skills that we learn throughout the week. Players will be more agile physically and mentally than ever before!
Along with the dryland, all goalies will receive 10 hours of on ice instruction, 5 hours of which will be dedicated to goalie specific drills with our goalie instructor. Our goalie sessions will focus on understanding save selection, RVH, VH, mapping ice, footwork, recovery concepts, skating and puck handling. Goalies will come away with a personalized understanding of their development path and the skill progressions necessary to improve during the following season.
Pacific Challenge is a full day camp where players are dropped off in the morning and picked up in the late afternoon. We are looking for 7:45am drop-offs and 3:00pm pick-ups (actual schedule with times will be posted soon). On Friday afternoon we will invite families into the rink to watch their players battle for the Pacific Challenge Cup.
*This year, lunch will only be provided on Friday (pizza). SJHA will provide individually bagged snacks throughout the day, but players will be responsible for their own meals from Mon-Thurs.
Players of all skill levels are welcome to register within the birth years of 2005-2015
