Overview

The Oilers Hockey Institute is back for the 2018 Fall Session and is intended to challenge an athlete both physically and mentally, helping them reach their hockey goals. These sessions are offered to Atom, Peewee and Bantam level hockey players who already possess a strong technical skill base and will focus on development opportunities for the following skills: Skating, Shooting and Scoring, Checking and Defensive Skills, and Goaltending.

Each skill based camp will be offered in progression over the course of three sessions. Sessions will be led by Oilers Alumni Fernando Pisani & Chris Joseph and supported by Hockey Alberta and Hockey Edmonton instructors.
