Tim Turk

Tim Turk Shooting & Scoring

3-Day Camp (Friday - Sunday; Aug. 6, 7, 8)

Players will be divided into groups based ages and skill. Final camp schedule subject to enrollment numbers.

A common comment NHL shooting and scoring coach Tim Turk will make after a player takes a shot is "nice hips!" This might not be common feedback where you're from, but for a player who understands the drawbacks of fighting for counter-balance, they know exactly what Tim is talking about.

Tim Turk has been a shooting and scoring coach for two decades, including stops in the NHL with the Montreal Canadiens, Tampa Bay Lightning, Carolina Hurricanes, and Arizona Coyotes, in addition to programs in Sweden, Asia, Finland, Latvia, and Russia.

Tim Turks progam will help players focus on establishing balance and a base from which they can shoot, pass, and stickhandle. Players who work with Tim can shoot off one foot or two, but both techniques require a posture that allows for the power position. Many of these aspects and techniques will be the cornerstone of this program.

Mike Weaver

Mike Weavers Defense First

3-Day Camp (Friday - Sunday; June 25, 26, 27)

Defense First comes to CPCT and we are excited to introduce the only defensive school of its kind. Defense First will sharpen fundamental skills such as skating, passing, shooting, checking, and puck handling.
