Contact + Concussion Prevention Training for your Association
CONTACT is a SKILL, CONCUSSIONS are REAL
Safety is a top Priority
What is your association doing to teach your players about contact, checking, injuries or concussions? You could be liable for not training your players properly.
Contact is a Skill
Just like skating, shooting and passing, this is the best way to teach Contact and Concussion Prevention in a controlled environment for a reasonable cost to the players and families....especially when safety is a factor.
We Will Travel To You
With the convenience of coming to your rink, coaches and players will receive the safest and best training around pertaining to the difficult subject of Concussions, Contact, Checking and Injuries. We have the ability to work with any level you feel is appropriate for your Association. Our participants include both boys and girls ages 11 and up, especially ideal for players entering Bantams.
Your coaches will receive the education to properly teach your players long after we are gone. This ensures proper technique and safety of your players.
How long is the Association Contact Camp?
Each Camp is 3 hours total (50 min video. 10 min to get dressed. 2 hours continuous on-ice). If you would like to do more than one camp in a day or over multiple days, please let us know and we can schedule accordingly.
How many players at a time?
We can accommodate up to 32 skaters boys and/or girls ages 11 and up.
Can you have more than one age level or gender?
Yes! We encourage it. Our camps are designed for the players to make contact with the dummies, not each other. Making it convenient to get multiple ages, boys or girls on the ice at once to maximize ice time.
What will the Association get with the camp?
- Parents will have the peace of mind that their child is getting the best training available pertaining to such a stressful topic.
- We will travel to your facility for convenience

*Off-ice and on-ice video is very informative and a big piece of our program.
What is the Association's responsibility?
- 3-hour block per Association Contact Camp
- 1-hour off-ice space. A place, locker room or open room, to do video. We have a computer and projector that can be projected on a white wall.
- 2-hours of ice: Your coaches will run the drills with our checking dummies under our instruction
- Association is responsible for taking care of registrations
- 32 players max (4 stations depending on numbers, equaling up to 8 kids per coach)
- 4-5 coaches (4 to push dummies in all 4 corners, 1 to help out and fill in if needed)
- 4 goalies if you’d like (they will receive a lot of shots, but no instruction unless you have someone to instruct them)
- 4 nets
Can the Association do this as a fundraiser?
You bet! We offer a set price for our camp/services. Because you are taking the registrations, you determine the price you want to charge the players.
Can goalies attend?
Yes, goalies are encouraged to attend because there are 4 nets/drills going at once. They will not receive formal goalie training, however, they will receive an abundance of shots. We even allow the goalies to jump into some of the drills with the dummies because it is so fun.
How does payment for the camp work?
Once we confirm with you (either by phone or email) date/s & time/s we will then send an invoice where you can click a link and pay the deposit to hold the date and time. Deposit is half of the cost of the camp/s. Final payment is then due the date of the camp.
