Lethbridge - Female hockey players grades seven to 11 hoping to strengthen their skills on the ice, can now register for Warner Hockey School Identification Camp June 17 - 19, 2016.
Now in its 14th year, the camp runs in Lethbridge at the Crossings arena and features two practice times, two games, a goalie ice session, as well as dry-land training, stick handling, fitness testing and stretching sessions.
Amanda Bergen Henengouwen, Head Athletic Therapist with the Warner Hockey School, said the organization has enjoyed great success with approximately 98 per-cent of participants going on to play post-secondary hockey with N.C.W.A in the states, and Canadian hockey Leagues such as C.I.S. and A.C.A.
"We're getting more university scouts coming to Canada to watch girls. In the past you had to go down to the U.S. to be scouted for the U.S., now scout are starting to see how good the female hockey is here," she said.
The summer hockey school is intended to prepare athletes for regular season training at a higher skill level.
The cost for the weekend is $299 + tax and will include meals and accommodation.
