The NZIHF is proud to announce the return of regional Youth Development Camps throughout 2022.

These camps are available to all male and female players, born from 2004 through to 2015. Coaches will group players by appropriate age and level of experience.

Our aim is to provide New Zealand’s youth players with a FUN and age-appropriate on and off-ice training. Training in the camp is largely based off of USA Hockey’s use of small area skills and station work.

These camps are not designed for beginner skaters. It is expected that all participants, regardless of age, can adequately skate. If you are unsure then please speak with your club head coach prior to registering.
