The St. James Jr. Canucks Present….
2016 Fall Pre-season Development Camps @ St. James Civic Centre
Ages 6, 7, 8 (2008, 2009, 2010) – Cost $135 (7 hours)
The St. James Junior Canucks are committed to helping foster the development of young hockey players in the community. During the season, all Canuck players take part in various community events such as: AA Day, community club carnivals, and minor hockey practices. They are excited to give back to St. James minor hockey; a community that helped develop them into the players and citizens they have become. An important initiative from the Canucks executive is to provide high quality hockey development at an affordable price to minor hockey players in the St. James and surrounding area. Our camps will aim not only to improve player’s skill level, but to emphasize the importance of teamwork, work ethic and developing a positive attitude.
Our instructors include highly trained and certified instructors that have grown up playing hockey in the St. James Minor Hockey system. Many of these players are alumni of the St. James Junior Canucks and are thrilled to have the opportunity to provide quality skill based instruction to young hockey players.
Every player in each camp will receive:
- St. James Junior Canucks Hockey Camp jersey
- Last day of the camp:
- players will get a tour of the Canucks Dressing room
- players will receive pizza
- First chance to sign up to lead the Canucks out with the flag during a home game
