Ice HockeyMajors

Campers who select hockey as their major at Bridgton Sports Camp are on the ice for at least 13 hours each week. A hockey period consists of a combination of skills, drills, and game play. The difference between us and other camps that offer ice hockey is that we have a rink on-site. This provides campers more ice time, which allows us to offer more in-depth, comprehensive instruction on all facets of the game. All campers have their own locker so all of the equipment stays at the rink. In addition to the hockey periods every day, we also have off ice speed/agility training and hockey inter-camp vs. local camps.
The overall goal for the summer is to make sure each camper is getting the most they can out of their experience. We have worked with hockey players at every level. It is our goal that each camper will have an experience that not only will be fun but also help them develop into the player they hope to someday be.

Ty Hockey

The ratio of coaches to campers is great. In the morning, the coaches would help us improve on new skills with lots of individual attention. Then in the afternoon we would use what we learned in game situationsTy (2nd-year camper from PA)
