Each group will have two 50 minute skates, broken up by a 10 minute zamboni break. Every camper receives a jersey and hat.

Former Jr. Thunderbirds John Leonard (Arizona Coyotes), Ryan Leonard (Boston College), Peter Crinella (Guildford Flames), and Matt Foley will instruct the training camp alongside active collegiate and professional hockey players and coaches.  

"This training camp has always been a great experience.  It means a lot to work with kids who play for the same teams as we did at their age.  We take a lot of pride in developing our favorite concepts and training techniques, learned from all the places our careers have taken us, and bringing them back home for camp." - John Leonard

"What makes TBirds Training Camp unique is that it really is a training camp.  It falls right before the season and the ice sessions are run accordingly. Getting the participants back in hockey shape, sharpening their skills, and building good habits, allows them to hit the ice running.  Feeling 100% right from the start really benefits them throughout the entirety of the season." - Matt Foley
