Hockey IQ 8U-10U – March 2020

1 Spot Open

Hockey IQ is a specialized camp focused on the team game of hockey. Each week we breakdown a specific zone to discuss positions and tactics. We focus on either attacking that zone or defending it. There is a 30 minute classroom session before each ice time, followed by 1 hour of ice time implementing and reinforcing what we learned in the classroom.

This spring  the 2020 program offers a 6 week session for current 8U Red and 10U B1+ players. The camp age is based on the level played during the 2019-20 season.

Schedule and Outline

The outline of the 6 week camp is shown below. The content is tailored to the age and skill level of the players, as shown in the breakout example:

  • 8U moving up to 10U: We focus on the standard breakout.
  • 10U: We introduce a center breakout.
  • 10U-12U advanced: We teach reverse, D to D, and other variations of the breakout to defeat a forecheck.
