A few days ago we posted the time trials done by the novice and novice plus groups at the 2020 Sledge Hockey camp.
Now it is time to give some attention to the Intermediate group from the camp! The intermediate athletes skated around the entire rink from hash marks to hash marks. Alyssa clocked in with the fasted time 23.92! While coaches saw the biggest improvement from Gianluca and Christian, shedding off 7.6 seconds, and 5.47 seconds respectively!!
Well done everyone we can't wait to see you all this season!
Check out this great video the Sledgehammers made over the summer, staying connected even during covid!
Another year and yet another successful Sledge Hockey camp! We ran our fourth annual Skate to Physical literacy Sledge hockey camp to roaring success! With 23 athletes being involved in developing their skills, fostering friendships, and growing as a group throughout the week. We had a great group of athletes ranging in ages and experience, with some athletes trying Sledge Hockey for the first time at this camp!
This year we timed the novice and novice plus skaters from goal line to blue line on Monday and Friday to see if there was a change in their overall speed. Henry achieved the fastest time on Friday, while Max went from being a pusher to skating without any support!
Great work everyone we can't wait to see you all this season!!
A huge thank you goes out to all the parents for bringing their athletes to this camp, and allowing them to take some time away from everything that is going on right now. Another huge thank you goes out to the wonderful staff for helping make this camp a continued success!
