Each week an email is sent out to the everyone on our email list letting you know the focus of the session. In return parents will email us to let us know if they are attending so we have enough instructors to work the skate. If anyone wants to have a specialized session geared toward a specific concept they are welcome to request it and bring a group for training. Classes are designed to improve skills while teaching Game Concepts. There are NO "here do these drills" without correction and feedback. Everything has a purpose!!

Summer Camps Take Place at:


Mississauga Icelands Arena - Hwy 403 and Matheson - 5 minutes from Hwys 403 and 401


We Are An "ON ICE" Program - 15 & 30 Hour Summer Camps



Draft Choice Teaching Advantage

Hockey experience and teaching expertise necessary to help you

Reach the Next Level. 


It is ALL ICE. We are here to improve skills and teach the game. If you want your child to skate 100 miles an hour around the ice without correction....that is not us.

We will teach Proper Technique through Explanation, Demonstration, and Correction. This way they can fly around the ice Effectively and Efficiently while having us improve their Game Concepts as well!!

We Are Teachers and We teach SKILLS to Concepts for greater Understanding of the Game!


Our Philosophy

Canada has been known for Heart & Soul Hockey and is now known for Heart & Soul Technical Hockey.


Professional Instruction

Qualified teachers who know the game and teach the way players learn
