The on-demand schedule will offer:
We are disappointed we won't get to see your smiling faces at the rink this summer and hope you will take advantage of this special opportunity.
What does a daily schedule look like?
This camp is designed to work on your time! The on-demand style workouts can be done whenever you want. Because of the progressive curriculum, days 1-40 should be completed in order.
What if I register late or miss a day?
The 8-week progressive program is designed to work gradually from week to week and build off previous workouts. The 40-day sequence will have new material every day (Monday - Friday), beginning with "Day 1" on July 6th. Don't worry if you miss a few days or register after Day 1. You will be able to complete the days in order, giving you plenty of time (the videos will be archived).
