DHD Philosophy

Camp Overview

Each DHD camp is designed using a progression format. We feel this format is critical in the development of all hockey players. The first half of every ice session is devoted to fundamental skill development (technical skills and individual tactics). By isolating specific movements, we break down these fundamentals creating a solid foundation for any hockey player, mite through pro.
During the second half of every ice session the more tactical aspects of the game are covered. Initially, the focus is on more complex individual tactics, but as the week progresses, more in–depth team tactics and concepts are discussed. By incorporating European training, small area games, team competitions, and high intensity scrimmages, we are able to provide our participants the “total hockey” experience.
The progression, complexity and speed of our practice plans are dependent on the age and skill level of our participants. A low student to instructor ratio will ensure that your son or daughter receives the individual attention he|she deserves. All camps conclude with teams competing for the prestigious "OV" Cup.

Through many years of experience, hard work, attention to details and a passion for the game, we have put together a curriculum specific to each age and skill level.
