A message from Coach Rupp:

I hope your Spring is going well.  I am looking forward to the upcoming hockey season.  It will be here before you know it.  In previous correspondence you have information on summer skates at the Mills.  Info is below as well.  As you know the only way to get better at our sport is to get out on the ice and skate.  This camp is about $12 per skate or about what you'd pay for a stick and puck session.  It is a great value and limited to high school players only.  They are only accepting 30 skaters so it will fill up fast.  Please get signed up with Dean Weich, his info is highlighted below.  I'd like as many DHC skaters signed up as possible. I understand some of you will be playing baseball, soccer or have a busy summer schedule.  The skates are twice per week so if you miss one you can skate the second.  Commitment in the summer pays dividends in the winter!
Once you register please send me an e-mail so I know who is skating.  I will be out there when I can make it so I hope to see a lot of you guys!

Developmental Hockey Camp this summer at the Mills
Come join us for our 20th year of Hockey Camps in St. Louis. This camp is designed to:
·         Teach hockey skills through fast-paced drills.
·         Develop a better understanding of teamwork through small areas games.
·         Gain a better feel of the game through controlled scrimmages.
Our goal is to develop not only players' physical skills but improve their mental approach to the game.
We are once again focusing on High School age players and are limiting our camp to 30 skaters and 4 goalies.
The camp will emphasize defensive gap control, to help the player better compete in one-on-one situations; puck position, which includes correct body positioning as well as maintaining puck control with regrouping tactics; and defensive and offensive zone play, to allow the player to better understand puck movement and positioning.
Instructors include:
Dean Weich, camp director, local coach for more than 30 teams and former Central States and AAA coach.
Dan Herr, assistant director, former college coach and current St. Peter’s 2014 coach.
 Campers will skate 1 hour and 15 minutes each session, followed by a 15-minute chalk talk to help the campers better understand what they worked on that day. That will give the camp a total of 36 hours of instruction for a cost of $450. That’s a summer of hockey for less than most weekly camps.
Any questions contact us at drdean7@sbcglobal.net
If interested send a check to Dean Weich 3557 Compton Parkway, St Charles 63301.  Please include players name, email address and team you play with along 5 goals the camper would like to achieve this summer.
