For Junior High School & High School Boys & Girls trying to improve their game.
Warrior Hockey Clinic is part of Matignon High School’s Summer Sports Clinics. The emphasis of this clinic will be for young athletes to have fun as they learn the fundamentals of skating and hockey skills while promoting positive self-esteem and building confidence.
Warrior Clinic Philosophy
The most important part of playing hockey is building the proper foundation. By solidifying your skating and puck handling skills, you will be able to elevate the other parts of your game. Building a stronger base will also give you the confidence to challenge yourself both on and off the ice.
We offer a clinic that teaches the fundamentals in a safe environment, allowing the player to take risks so they can further stretch their own development. By hiring a staff that is dedicated to teaching and youth development, we are able to achieve these goals of improvement in a fun environment.
Our goal is to make each player a better player by the end our camp. We want each player to not only improve during the week, but also enable them to improve long after they have finished the camp.
