Summer Hockey Camp for Players with Hearing Loss
Saturday, June 9, 2018, All Day
The Edge Ice Arena, 735 E. Jefferson St, Bensenville
Camp for male and female hockey players with an established hearing loss.
Sponsored by the American Hearing Impaired Hockey Association (AHIHA), the camp is for youth beginners through college-level ability players. The 2018 camp dates are June 9 through June 16.
Players attending the camp have the opportunity to work with a number of USA Hockey qualified coaches in on-ice skills, systems of play and fundamentals of skating, along with off-ice conditioning. The players are placed on a team based on age, ability and experience. All the teams play games against outside competition during the week of the camp. There is also a program for beginning players. They concentrate on skating skills and beginning hockey skills.
AHIHA will provide bus transportation daily to transport the hockey players and their families, to and from the ice arena from the host hotel and back. AHIHA also provides three evening meals during the week and a buffet breakfast every morning. There is a Closing Reception following the Awards Ceremony on the last day of the camp.
Hockey Camp participants are responsible for travel and accommodations, meals (that are not provided by AHIHA) and transportation other than the bus.
