in Toronto at the MasterCard Center, 400 Kipling Avenue, Etobicoke the week of July 18 - 22, 2016
This full-day camp includes 2 ice sessions per day and tons of technical drills and exercises aimed at making you the best skater you can be. We also have fun games planned, of course!
As many of you may know, summer is the perfect time to work on technical improvements. We are excited to welcome back coaching team from Quebec: Jerome and Elizabeth along with our TSSC coaches and also guest coaches.
Two ice sessions each day, technical dryland, video analysis, games, and a picnic.
We provide an overall positive environment with opportunities for every skater to move closer to achieving their personal goals.
Coaching Team: We are very happy to announce that Jérôme Boisvert-Lacroix and Elizabeth Ward from CPV Montreal -Gadbois will be leading the camp again this year, and continue their excellent work with Ontario skaters.
Youth skaters of all levels – 8 years and older - minimum 1 season completed. This is not a camp for learning to speed skate.
All skaters: 1 week $400
If you need to book a place to stay, we strongly suggest that you do so early to avoid disappointment. There are a large number of hotels in the Pearson airport area, which is located a 15 to 20 minutes drive away from the rink.
TSSC will try to facilitate billeting opportunities by putting interested out-of-town skaters in contact with local families willing to host. We can not guarantee that requests will be met by an offer because this is dependent on volunteerism. Please consider $150 per week per skater as a financial contribution to the host family.
Please download and complete the Summer Camp 2016 Registration Form at the link here:
and send it, along with your payment to the address indicated on the form. Registrations will be entered in queue on a first come basis, once both the form (fully completed and signed) and cheques are received.
