The following is forwarded to you on behalf of Ben Warda, Owner and Head Instructor of West Michigan Pro Hockey School.
"We have been working alongside the KVHA Hockey Director to secure an opportunity to offer this camp and we are very proud to announce one of our week-long training camps coming to the KV Ice House this summer from August 3rd-7th! This camp is specifically reserved for KVHA players only, as we’re committed towards becoming a part of the KVHA and help improve skill development for the youth hockey players in the area. We have attached the daily camp itinerary to this email. To briefly go over it: each day the players will have 3 hours of on-ice training with drills directly from Junior, College, and NHL training camps, including Team Canada World Championship training camps, that will drastically improve the players overall skill level and better prepare them for next season. All drills/practice plans are helped designed by former coaches of mine Jon Cooper (Tampa Bay Lightning Head Coach NHL), Andy Murray (Western Michigan University Head Coach, 16 years of NHL coaching), Pat Ferschweiler (Assistant Coach Detroit Red Wings NHL), and Jean-Guy Trudel (Peoria Rivermen SPHL). We are very proud to have this pedigree of coaches to help construct and guide our hockey school. In between ice sessions there will also be an hour of video/chalk talk going over clips of various game-like situations with discussions about thinking the game differently and improving our hockey IQ. After video there will be an hour of off-ice circuit training focusing on hockey specific movements improving on speed, agility, explosiveness, resistance training, plyometric work, and overall conditioning. The idea behind these workouts is to not only better prepare the players for next season, but to teach them the proper ways to train their bodies as they move forward from year to year. Lastly, we will have one nutrition meeting throughout the week with our own personal nutritionist Nanette Cameron, as she will teach us the proper ways to fuel our bodies to get the most out of our practices and games next season. We are very proud to have Nanette as a member of the WM Pro staff - the players at camp will learn tremendously from her guidance. The rest of my staff at WM Pro are all CURRENTLY PLAYING HOCKEY AT THE PROFESSIONAL LEVEL. This is a very important aspect of my hockey school because I want staff members who have been there, know what it takes to succeed at the highest level, and have a strong passion for the game. All further details about the camp, including my credentials, our focus, my staff, what to expect, registration details, etc. can be found at our website www.westmichiganpro.com. Also, be sure to check out our Facebook page: West Michigan Pro Hockey School with updated pictures and videos of our first camp this summer in Howell. Thank you all, we look forward to working with you this summer!
