    breakouts, forechecking, defensive zone coverage, face off positioning and special teams.

In all of our sessions, we will be grouping by ability level which allows us to ensure that each
player will be challenged and comfortable at the same time. All activities, both on and off the
ice, have been designed to contribute to the total hockey development. Our goal is to
challenge each individual to reach their full potential as a hockey player.

This development camp is a fundraiser for the Grindstone Award Foundation

The Grindstone Goal

Our goal is to raise funds for the Grindstone Award Foundation – to help female hockey players with financial aid that otherwise couldn’t afford to play. We want to make an impact across the Nation by empowering women in life and sport. Proceeds after expenses will go towards this effort.
