CT Elite Hockey has prepared a comprehensive showcase for its Prep Division that will provide hockey players (Birth years 2004-2006 with opportunities to enhance their game. 

Each team will have two practice sessions and three games. Each showcase participant will also take part in off-ice training and informative seminars.  Last year's seminars were focused on nutrition, social media use, and recruiting. The camp will be divided into four teams. Campers will find out which team they are on at check-in on the first day. We have so many last minute changes that it's difficult to finalize sooner.

CT Elite Hockey staff will conduct all on-ice practices.  The games will feature coaches from various prep schools.  In the past, coaches from the following schools were present:

 


Schedule:

A tentative Prep Division schedule will be posted prior to camp start. This includes the flow of each day, including times for meals, practices and games. Right now we have the 2017 schedule posted so you can see how the flow of each day went for last year's Prep Division campers.

What you need to know for planning:

Check-in on the first day for overnight campers will be in the early afternoon at a dorm to be assigned by the University. We will post the dorm name, address and directions once confirmed. Also exact timing will be identified as we get closer to camp start, but wanted to identify early afternoon for planning purposes.

Dismissal on the last day will be between 2:30 - 5 p.m. Again, we are still working on schedule but you can plan for the afternoon.

Check-in on the first day for day campers will be between at the rink in the early afternoon; exact time to be confirmed later. GPS Address: 509 Jim Calhoun Way, Storrs, CT *These times are tentative as we finalize our schedule, but general time frame for planning purposes may be helpful. 

Tentative drop-off times each day for day campers will be as follows:

  • Day 1 - Sunday, July 29: early afternoon
  • Day 2 - Monday, July 30: 8:30 at the rink
  • Day 3 - Tuesday, August 1: 8:30 at the rink *times to be finalized later, but just an estimate listed for planning purposes

Pick up for day campers will vary each day - between 6-8 p.m. depending on what time the team finishes that the camper is on.

Camp dismissal on Tuesday, August 1 will be sometime between 2:30 p.m. and 5 p.m., depending on what time the team finishes that the camper is on. Again, these times are NOT final, but we are aiming for them. Final times will be posted a week or two prior to the start of the camp.

Campers will find out which of the six teams they are on at check in. 

 

Overnight Camp - $595 (covers entire camp, all three days)

Boarding:
For the Prep Division overnight camp, participants will be housed in a dorm on the University of Connecticut campus.  The air-conditioned dorm rooms will be shared by a teammate. Specific requests to board with a teammate can be made on the registration form. There are two beds per room. In the past some of the rooms have been quads - 2 bedrooms connected to a living space and bathroom.

There will be adequate supervision in the dormitories. Additionally, the University of Connecticut will position an employee at the dorm.

Each camp participant is required to sign a code of conduct of expected behavior at the camp, while participating in all aspects of the camp. Camp counselors will be with participants every step of the way to enforce the code of conduct.

Upon check-in, each camp participant will receive an ID/security card that will allow him to access dorms, dorm room, and will also serve as a meal card. Dorms will not be able to be accessed after 11 p.m. each evening and camp counselors will conduct a bed check upon curfew that is set.

Food:
Meals are included in the price of the camp.  As a boarder, the participant will receive the following meals:

  • Dinner on check-in day (July 29)
