The Nashville Predators' eighth annual hockey school is scheduled for Monday, July 10 through Friday, July 14, 2006 at Centennial Sportsplex, the official practice facility of the Predators.
Boys and girls ages 8-14 of all skill levels are invited to hit the ice for this informative and action-packed week, which will feature on- and off-ice instruction from Predators coaches and prospects. Led by Predators video coach Robert Bouchard, the school will feature guest instruction by head coach Barry Trotz, associate coach Brent Peterson and strength and conditioning coach David Good. In past years, Predators prospects Paul Brown, Kevin Klein, Alexander Radulov, Scottie Upshall, Shea Weber and others have made guest appearances.
Youth attending the hockey school will be challenged daily with more than two hours of ice time, intensive dryland conditioning, power skating, passing, shooting, off-ice training techniques and video analysis. Other features of the camp include lectures on nutrition, injury prevention, equipment maintenance and perspectives from Nashville Predators personnel.
Camp enrollment, which has sold out over the past seven years, is $375. Registration includes daily lunches, an official Predators Hockey School jersey, a T-shirt, a certificate of completion, and a souvenir photo. Space is limited and spots are filling up quickly.
