2018 Elite Holiday Hockey Camp


NSHDA's Elite Holiday Camp is for players who inspire to play at an elite-level and are committed to the game of hockey.


2018 Elite Holiday Camp will provide an energetic positive environment to sharpen up the fundamental skills that may not be the primary focus during the hockey season. All sessions will include edge work, puck handling, puck protection, shooting and small area games that transfer core skills and Hockey IQ.


This year’s Elite Holiday camp will be coached by Ryan Taylor, Brett Lebda, Chris Affinati, and a very special guest, NHL's Shooting Coach, Tim Turk.  Goalie instruction will be provided by Oliver Freij.


NSHDA is proud to announce that Tim Turk, NHL Shooting and Scoring coach for over 20 years, will be on the ice with us for this year's NSHDA's Elite Holiday camp! 


Coach Tim Turk has worked with 4 NHL organizations (Montreal Canadiens, Tampa Bay Lightning, Carolina Hurricanes, and Arizona Coyotes), and many National Programs such as Sweden, Asia, Finland, Latvia, and Russia. Throughout the year, he continues to work with NHL players, but also works with many organizations, minor hockey teams, coaches and players of all ages and levels. 


He specializes in Hockey Shooting, Passing and Puck Protection, while also teaching the technical aspects and strategies of puck protection and control. 


NSHDA is very excited to have him as a special guest at this year’s Elite Holiday Camp!
