SHIFT Hockey Development
Our vision is to inspire and educate. In the gym, on the ice, or in a class, coaching is at our core. We create a roadmap (Athlete Action Development Plan) and provide mentorship so you can achieve your dreams.

All Ages

The goal of the camp is to show techniques and use drills to help improve a player’s overall skill and understanding of the game. Drills and situational teaching points will give the player confidence in their ability to create and execute plays.


Our holiday camps are an opportunity for Players to focus on opportunities identified in the first part of the season.

The on-ice portion of the camp will be led by Coach Al Daggett and will provide players of all levels the opportunity to develop every aspect of their game. 

Off the ice, Players will have the opportunity to work on any impingements that may be impacting their on-ice performance. Players will be led through a dynamic workout prior to the on-ice portion of the camp. Players will also have the option to arrive early to work on their golf game on our new simulators at no cost.
