Scouting & Exposure Opportunities

As these coaches work with the athletes both on- and off-ice for the duration of the camp, they have an excellent opportunity to get to know each player personally and are in a position to better direct and guide that players development and training. Additionally, due to this relationship building, the camp has become a fertile recruiting ground as they get to know each players' strengths, weaknesses, compete levels, coachability, focus and preparation.
