The Spalding Boys Ice Hockey camp will provide the following:
Prospect and Development Camp
Spalding's prospect and development camp is designed for rising 3rd through 8th graders. The camp features 15 hours of on-ice skill development, competitive work, and various off-ice activities ranging from shooting, plyometrics and a video review. It also provides an excellent opportunity to meet Spalding coaches, work with current student-athletes, take a tour of the Spalding campus, and learn about the enriching culture of both Spalding High School and its ice hockey program.
Orientation Training Camp
Spalding's orientation training camp is exclusive to incoming and current Spalding student-athletes. The OTC's mission is to establish program expectations, systems, and skill development for the program in a community and team-building environment. It is an outstanding opportunity for players to build lasting relationships and establish confidence and comfort within the Spalding hockey program.
Players should expect camp to last from 9 am to 4 pm daily. A more detailed camp and ice schedule are forthcoming.
The Spalding Ice Hockey Summer Camps are directed by Rob Trantin, Head Coach Spalding Ice Hockey, and the supporting staff of assistant and skill coaches. Rob Trantin graduated from Spalding, Class of 2001, and has coached at Spalding since 2009, becoming the head coach in 2014.
“Since we began hosting summer camps in 2017, we have done a tremendous job building and evolving the product to its current state,” declares Trantin. “It is now a staple of our programming. The Prospect and Development Camp allows young players to interact with current coaches and players and also introduces them to the enriching tradition that is Spalding, both on and off the ice. In 2019, we launched the Orientation Training Camp, taking the program to a new level by crafting a camp model that emphasizes and reinforces our systems, behaviors, community outreach, and expectations. By investing in the experience of our future and current players, we create opportunities as an ice hockey program and improve our effectiveness in developing high-quality young men. And that is our most important goal.”
