2015 Andy Scott Skills Camp — Dates!
Camp dates are July 27 – July 31 (2005 and younger), and August 3 – 7 (1999 through 2004). Andy Scott is one of the most respected coach in the area, and currently an assistant coach of the Reading Royals (ECHL team) affiliate of the Philadelphia Flyers. the camp will incorporate quality coaches to provide a great hockey experience for your child.
The camp will run from 8:00am – 4:00pm, Monday through Friday.
Players will be on the ice for at least twice each day.
Each on-ice session will focus on development of 4 hockey skill areas: skating, puck handling, passing, shooting, and the application of those skills in small area games.
Off-ice training will focus on augmenting hockey skills development and participating in fun Team games.
Lectures and video sessions will focus on teaching age appropriate game concepts.
For starters, many athletes spend too much time traveling, competing and recovering from competition and not enough time preparing for it. Second, there is too heavy a focus on the result rather than the performance. This attitude leads to long-term failure, as coaches forgo the development of skills to focus on specific game tactics. And third, too many athletes are specializing too early on. An early focus on just one or two sports often leads to injuries, burnout and capping athletic potential.
This way of thinking has led to 60% of players dropping out before PeeWees and 20% dropping out after only one season leading to an overall decline in retention since 2000.
Coach Herb Brooks was famous for saying that, “Great moments are born from great opportunities.” Well this is our opportunity. Our time to get it right.
The American Development Model is a nationwide model for successfully developing American hockey players. It is by no means a mandate sent from USA Hockey, but a tool that will ensure every kid will have the same chance to succeed.
By implementing ADM, associations will see an increase in player retention. Again, ADM is not a set of rules or mandates, but guidelines designed specifically to help kids reach their full potential.
