During the 2 hour lunch break there will be seminars on educational options, Canada v/s USA, Nutrition and off season fitness training. After the Lunch break the girls will return to the ice for another 2 hours of instruction.

This camp will combine position-specific skill development and Scoring Skills instruction for both forwards and defense with individual instruction for the goaltenders. There will be a heavy emphasis on decision training and game situational drills that will allow the athlete to develop their read and react skills from player specific positions.

Bill Bowker will run National Team development drills with play in both the offensive zone, the neutral zone and specific defensive zone responsibility for the defense. Systems will be introduced to teach breakout theory and the importance of North / South speed & East / West puck movement on offensive zone entry.
