SEAC Spring Development Camp 2018

SEAC Tigers: Train Like a Tigers Spring Development Camp

April 6th-8th, 2018


Want to learn how to Train like a Tiger and Find Out What Is Needed for Optimal Athletic Hockey Development? The Southeast Athletic Club is pleased to announce the 2018 Spring Development Camp for all levels of Pee Wee, Bantam and Midget Players. SEAC is partnering with Coach’s Edge and the Alberta Sport Development Centre-Southeast to offer our spring camp April 6-8 in Medicine Hat at the Cenovus Family Leisure Centre. The purpose of the camp is to provide Pee Wee, Bantam and Midget age players of all skill levels with an overview of what is necessary to play elite level hockey. The camp will provide four on-ice sessions per age group instructed by Coach’s Edge instructors Dan MacDonald and Doug Raycroft. On ice sessions will be geared towards learning the key fundamentals of skating, edge control, balance, and evasive moves while developing the fundamentals to improve scoring, becoming a better defensemen and learning how to improve individual skills at increasing speed.

SEAC also wants to provide learning opportunities for additional off-ice training regiments during this camp, as this is paramount to athletic development and injury prevention. SEAC has partnered with the Alberta Sport Development Centre-Southeast (ASDC-SE) to support the SEAC philosophy of how to “Train Like a Tiger”, providing two off ice sessions for each group.

These off-ice sessions provided by ASDC-SE will focus on how to build fitness and physical training requirements for elite level sport, as well as highlighting nutritional and mental training aspects. ASDC-SE will provide athletes with knowledge of appropriate movement patterns using a functional movement analysis technique. Players will learn how to move effectively in an athletic training scenario, which will help them to move effectively on the ice. Additionally, ASDC-SE will take athletes through a typical hockey specific strength & conditioning training session. Athletes will leave with an increased knowledge of how hockey players train as well as an information package to assist with their training and development. The camp will begin late Friday afternoon and wrap up on Sunday. Players are to register 1 hour prior to their ice time on Friday. Participants will be divided into 3 groups according to age and will be provided with a jersey to keep and wear for the duration of the camp.
