2020 Elite Summer Hockey Camp

We are currently in the process of identifying committed hockey players to train during the summer of 2020. The North Shore Hockey Development Academy (NSHDA) Elite Summer Hockey Camp will run from June 8th to July 30th.  The camp will take place at Heartland Ice Arena. The camp will run each week Monday through Thursday (4 days).


The purpose of NSHDA's Elite Summer Camp is to provide a training ground for elite hockey players to master their craft over the summer.  The coaches on the Ice will be Ryan Taylor, Tony Gill, and Brett Lebda.  NSHDA is derived from the recognition that to build high level athletes it takes quality repetitions and advanced techniques. Hockey skills will be taught in a repetitive manner making the core fundamentals second nature so players can execute in competition. This summer camp is for players who inspire to play at an elite level and are committed to the game of hockey.

This training routine will focus on core aspects of the game for nine weeks. Focus will be on skating/edges, passing, stick handling, shooting, defensive plays, offensive plays, and small area battles. Coaching emphasis will be on technique, repetition, constant feedback, and mastering of the skill. Each player will receive a NSHDA jersey.


The Bantam, Peewee, and Squirt Levels will have a daily off-ice dry land program.  Midgets will also have the opportunity to do off-ice training this year as well.  The enhanced off-ice program will be led by High Performance Training in their state of the art facility at Heartland Ice Arena.  High Performance Training is the new partner of NSHDA.  We believe the HPT program will help elevate players to reach a higher level. The off-ice program will build strength, speed, and agility for on ice play. 


Goalies will have specific instruction three days per week by GDI team who focus on breaking down the goaltending position into a logical sequence of progressions with customized, personal evaluations for each goalie. 


Training throughout the whole summer will allow players to make significant gains on and off the ice.  NSHDA camp runs during off-peak hours leaving time for other sports at night and on the weekends.  The following are the weeks and times of the camp:
