Summer youth hockey camps held at Union Arena


WOODSTOCK—With summer heating up, a great way to cool off is at Union Arena in Woodstock where a number of youth hockey camps and clinics will be held. Each clinic will focus on different techniques aiming to enhance skaters and players abilities in focused areas. 

Some of the clinics include:

Hockey skating clinic with Jacki Smith: Jacki Smith will hold her hockey skating clinic, focusing on skating techniques, keeping your upper body quiet, and more skills to enable the player to do anything with a stick and puck.

Figure skating clinic: Centered on techniques to help keep skating skills sharp enough to  hit the ice ready to continue into next season.

Summer hockey league: Skaters will have an opportunity to be on the ice and participate in drills, learning important skills and parts of the game from Steven Townley, local Woodstock alum and state champion, now playing D-1 collegiate hockey for Dartmouth’s “Big Green” men’s ice hockey team.

Sunday hockey clinic with Jon Chamberlin: This is an opportunity for players to receive college and junior level coaching from an experienced staff on the ice, developing their hockey skills through small area games and drills. Each session will end with the players putting it all together in a full-ice game.

Greg Carter European Hockey Camps: For the most on-ice instruction and the best results using the Carter  Method, skaters will build on each day’s skills and are challenged to reach their full potential as the hockey camp progresses.

Ben Lovejoy Hockey School: With the focus of teaching young boys and girls hockey skills they will need to know, to play at the next level.

Skaters edge w/ Dave Reece: This skating instruction focuses on player development, stick handling, positional play and small area scrimmages. Designed for players who want five days of individual development in a small, competitive group setting. Fewer skaters allows for greater improvement with more reps per drill versus waiting in line.
