Summer Training for Advanced Squirt and Pee Wee Players

Top Shelf Hockey at Chelsea Piers offers a series of camps designed to hone the skills and conditioning of experienced travel hockey players. With low player-to-coach ratios and a professional staff (including collegiate coaches), motivated athletes will improve their skating and hockey skills. Along with intense on-ice instruction, players receive off-ice strength training at BlueStreak Sports Training and focused instruction at the Outdoor Hockey Skill Zone. Groups are divided by age and skill level.

The Chelsea Piers Top Shelf coaching staff develops and enhances new skills through fundamental step-by-step coaching designed to push players out of their comfort zone. Each player receives a report card at the end of the week outlining the three key areas that are crucial to individual development — player's strengths, areas for improvement, and recommendations for on and off-ice actions needed to improve areas of weakness.
