85 players, 8 goalies and 20+ coaches from around the country attended the first of four NZIHF Youth Development Camps in Queenstown over the weekend.
The development camps provide New Zealand’s youth players with a fun and age-appropriate on and off-ice training to further develop their ice hockey skills, and the camp is largely based off of USA Hockey’s use of small area skills and station work.
A special thanks to Queenstown Ice Arena for hosting us, as well as the NZIHF Development crew, NZ national team and local coaches for giving up their Easter break to benefit so many.
The remaining camps for 2021 take place as follows:
- Christchurch: July 23rd / 25th
- Dunedin: August 27th / 29th
- Auckland: October 22nd / 25th
