Battle & 'D' Camp

2009 - 2007


Monday April 1st

Battle Portion (50%):


Hockey is a game of small ballets that take place throughout the game. During a game there are 100’s of battles. Players that win battles are more successful in the game. We will work on: puck protection, creating space, small area games, engagement drills, angling, agility, body positioning, lose pucks along the boards & open ice.


'D' Portion (50%):

GRIT’s Elite Defense Camp is an excellent opportunity to assist those playing defense that are currently playing A, AA or AAA hockey.
