Professional women hockey players run a summer camp

Campers who play at different hockey levels will get the chance to perfect their on-ice skills with members of Les Canadiennes

Don’t put away that hockey gear just yet. Members of Les Canadiennes, Montreal’s professional women’s ice hockey team, will be offering a week-long summer camp geared to girls but that also welcomes boys.

The camp is for athletes who play at the Pre-Novice, Atom, Pee-Wee, Bantam and Midget levels. Campers will get the chance to perfect their on-ice techniques through a series of drills and exercises and will also learn the importance of good sportsmanship and how to work as a team. Programs specifically designed for goalies will be offered as well and each camper will receive a team jersey.

The camp will take place from Aug.15 to 19 at the Étienne-Desmarteau Arena, 3430 de Bellechasse St. in Rosemont. The cost is $430.
