Apollo's power skating camps will help a player progress and improve their skating skills in a logical and systematic approach. Apollo instructors will be meticulous in their demonstrations and explanations. Players can attend the BRONZE, SILVER OR GOLD level camps. Each camp will include balance and control, forward stride, backward stride, crossovers, starts and stops. SILVER AND GOLD also include turns, transitions, pivots, agility and lateral movement.
Skating, shooting, passing and stickhandling are 4 of the 5 core technical areas of hockey. The players who are best at these areas are usually the best players on the ice. Where are you best at? Track your progress at an Apollo Skills Evaluation.
Apollo's team of experienced goaltending coaches will be visiting Chester, Shelburne and Bridgetown in the fall for one-day, local, comprehensive camps. Each camp will focus on positioning, tracking the puck, movement, angles, rebound control, save selection.
Battle camps focus mainly on checking skills. They begin with skating maneuvers used in checking, then progress to positioning, stick checks and contact confidence. Players will not actually be hitting opponents. This is not a checking clinic.
Analytics are becoming a big part of sports, including hockey. How does this math relate to scoring goals in a game? Join an Apollo scoring camp and become a smarter and more skilled goal scorer and play maker. You'll learn where to shoot from, where to shoot to and what kind of shot to take. We will also help develop your power and accuracy.
FIRST GOAL (new players)
One of Apollo's goals is to increase the number of people playing the sport of hockey in Nova Scotia. If you know someone who is interested in playing encourage them. This one hour introduction (or re-introduction in some cases) will be the first step in joining. Apollo staff will work hard to make sure it's a positive experience. Did we mention it's free?
Be sure to check back or contact Apollo to see what else will be offered in the future.
If you or your association / female zone are interested in having Apollo come for season, a week, a weekend or a day contact Mike at Apollo Hockey Development. firstname.lastname@example.org
