Hockey Camp

The hockey camp can be a wonderful moment in time

Where player, coaches and families can grow

There are so many benefits from the time and skills bestowed

Where they can struggle or their time is sublime.

Yes there are players and parents are a distraction

Their act grows thin in this camp of dreams

Where coaches take control to promote and keep it clean

The good players show their stuff and want to be the main attraction.

There is a disciplined order during this week

Getting up and going to bed early to keep their strength

So they can shoot, pass, save the puck and stride with length

The players goal should be to perfect their craft for all to see.

However at this age they are still little boys

The drills and scrimmages must be fun

Playing other games help so they don’t lose interest and say their done

May they all continue to grow in hockey and life but at this time remain little boys.
