2024 Summer Camps

**Registration Opens April 22nd @ 2pm**

Tara’s Elite Summer Camp is designed for players competing at the A, AA and AAA levels. Players should already have a strong foundation for their respective ages. The camp will provide players with professional power skating and skills instruction. Our camp will demand that players are hardworking and focused. We will provide a motivating, fun atmosphere while they improve their skills.

Players must be accepted. We streamline the skill level in order to run our program properly. Please enroll for the appropriate program for your age group and playing level. No exceptions will be made for players below the level indicated for the REP camp groups. This ensures the correct level of instruction and drill progression.

**Unfortunately, due to time constraints, we will not be offering select or house league program this summer.

Details of the On-Ice program are outlined below. I cannot accept partial registration. Players must sign up for the full week to get the maximum benefit from the camp.
