7th Annual Canmore Ellis Edge Camp

The camp is aimed at competitive youth skaters (L2T, T2T and Juniors) who wish to improve their technique. It will run Oct 12 – Oct 14.

The Head Coach for the camp is Sue Ellis from Rothesay, New Brunswick. Sue is a Level 4 NCCP coach, and 2002 US Olympic Short Track Team Head Coach.

This will be a technical camp, the focus is working on skill development. The camp participants will watch video of Elite World Cup and Olympic skaters, and analyze the technique and motions that the skaters perform as they skate. The camp participants will then attempt to recreate the motions in dry land exercises and then transfer those skills to the ice. One of the main differences of this camp, is that the skaters will develop an understanding of the technique that they are trying to develop and why; they can then use this knowledge when they analyze their own skating in the future.

The camp will run from approximately 8:30am –¬†5:00pm¬†each day, with two ice times, dry land, video analysis, and one hour for lunch. Cost for the three days is $270 and we have a limit of 25 skaters. More information can be directed to ianmellors@shaw.ca. They welcome skaters on a first come basis up to the 25 maximum.
