Competitive Thread operates hockey camps for elite players from the Novice level to Bantam level in the Edmonton area. They offer full day camps in the summer, conditioning, and small group development camps. Their player to coach ratio is always 4:1 so the player can receive the attention they do not get during the season to enhance their skills.
At Capital Thread they go the extra mile with their players. They run a series of test that players in the CHL and NHL go through to determine their on and off ice strengths and weaknesses. The players test results set up the bases of the drills for the camp so they can work on areas in which the players need to improve. With their extensive databases the players can compare their results to professionals to see what it takes to reach that level. They provide the players and their parents with objective and subjective feedback with written reports at the end of the camp.
The camps also include off-ice development. They have off-ice training sessions that are led by strength and conditioning Coach, Joel Jackson. Coach Jackson’s goal is to get the players stronger and faster off the ice so it will translate on the ice. Capital Thread camps also have an education portion in which they focus on important athlete qualities such as respect, leadership, and goal setting.
By the end of Capital Thread camps your child will walk away an overall better athlete. From skill development on the ice to off ice training and mental training in the classroom, your child will be ready for the next level.
