Hometown Heroes Information and Registration

The first edition of our week long summer camp takes place June 11th-15th at the Carmel Ice Skadium. It will be a unique and exciting experience for Indiana hockey players. Each day will feature a local player who has gone on to play USHL or NAHL junior, NCAA college and/or professional hockey. The player will be on ice to teach skills, but more importantly, help give local players role models to look up to and follow throughout the rest of their careers. It is very important that local players meet and get to know players from this area that have successfully reached the highest levels of hockey. Each day will finish with a Q&A session open to all players and parents with the day’s featured “Hometown Hero”.

Not only will your player be inspired by local players that have reached some of the highest levels, he or she will get top notch instruction on skating, puckhandling, passing, puck protection, scoring, battling and defending from the top local coaches lead by IYHA Director Derek Edwardson.

The week will finish with on ice testing and video recording of each player’s skating, puckhandling and shooting. This video will be analyzed, edited and returned to each player with audio comments and instruction on what can be easily fixed and worked on throughout the season. This is the only summer camp where you go home with tangible, individual feedback from a trained professional, not a camp counselor, that you can reference throughout the year to make you a better hockey player.

Groups of 2011-2009 birthdates and 2008-2006 birthdates will be capped at 28 skaters each. No longer will you be in a group of 50+ players to wait in line for 80% of your time on the ice. Within those age groups, players will be divided further into small groups of 8-10 determined by their relative size and skill development.

Drop off will be at 8:30am each day. Days will conclude with Q&A sessions open to all players and parents with each Hometown Hero beginning at 3:00pm. Cost for the week is $579. Family discounts are available upon registration for multiple siblings.  

Each player will get his own Hometown Heroes jersey to keep, dry fit workout shirt and autographed pictures of each guest Hero!

Stay tuned for this year’s “Hero” announcements in the coming weeks and months!
