Calling All Hockey Fanatics & Sports Enthusiasts! Sign Up for Canlan Ice Sports Summer Camps

Canlan Ice Sports Summer CampsDoes your kid live & breathe hockey? Are they bounding out of bed for early morning practice, are they begging to attend any available public skating session at your local rink just to hone their skills further? When they are outside playing with their friends, is the hockey stick glued in their hand? If so, you’ve got a hockey nut and it is best to embrace the passion. The majority of Canadians are hockey fanatics and the love for the sport starts young.

Canlan Ice Sports wants kids to avoid summer-time boredom by getting onto the ice, filling their days with action-packed summer camps, learning new skills and making new friends. Not only will your pint-sized hockey lover spend their week working on hockey conditioning skills, they will be learning off-ice games & skill training as well.

If your child is just beginning to skate, don’t worry, there are camps for them! Canlan Ice Sports meets kids at their skill level, exposes them to a jam packed week of conditioning & training, and truly moves them along with their skating skill development.
