Attention - Mites, Squirts, Peewees, Bantams and U14's,
Coach David Festa and Coach Andy Noel are once again running their spring skills clinic at Hamden Small Ice prior to Hawks tryouts. This is a popular camp and is a great way to both prepare for tryouts and have a fun hockey experience at the same time! Be sure to sign up soon as space is limited. Don’t miss out!
CT Hockey Skills is offering its Spring Development Camp this season at H3 in Hamden beginning on March 29th and running through April 19th. This is a great opportunity for your son(s) / daughter(s) to continue their development as athletes and hockey players along with preparation for the 2014 / 2015 Hawk tryouts.
ADVANTAGES OF TRAINING ON SMALL ICE
Hamden Hockey House (H3) is a unique venue to conduct hockey skills camps. Practice is held on a smaller sheet of ice, where the pace can exceed a full ice sheet. The close proximity of the coaches enables stronger communication with the players. The down time between drills is dramatically reduced and the small area encourages “heads up play” at all times. CT Skills and Development is excited about hosting our first camp at H3.
If you have any questions associated with this camp, please call (203) 537-2808 or via email at
