This camp is at the brand new, state of the art, UPMC Lemieux Sports Complex! This is the practice facility of the Pittsburgh Penguins. It is truly an amazing facility. Don't miss it.
"It was intense, but flowed such that everything built upon the last thing and I never felt overwhelmed. I learned more in 4 days than in a year of taking classes. Every single coach gave me actionable feedback that I could directly apply to improve my skating/skills immediately as well as advice on things to work on for longer term goals." – Mary Jo S.
"I can honestly say I learned more in one weekend than in 10 months of weekly group classes. Skating and passing are definitely improved. I felt like coaches made a real effort to get to know all the players, and work with them individually in each and every drill. It was fantastic - great coaches, great fellow players, fantastic drills. It's cliche, but I seriously can't think of a single thing that could have been done better!" - Jason M.

"Considering my age (50) and my experience (Limited), I'll admit I was really hesitant to do this. I figured I'd be in way over my head. I'm so glad I didn't let my fear keep me from coming because this camp was great. I felt welcomed by everyone (coaches and fellow players), there was no judgment at all, and I learned and improved a lot. I've taken classes before but never have I had so much feedback and individual help and I feel like it really helped me in so many areas. I still have a long way to go, but for once I feel like I'm headed in the right direction and the coaches gave me enough that I can now practice on my own and actually improve. I"d recommend this camp to anyone who is looking to improve their skills." – Lisa R.

"I'm so appreciative of the coaches. Sure, they show up to the camp, but no one is making them care about me and my game. They bring that themselves, and it really shows in their interactions with attendees." – Steven “Cap” P.
