Jets announce 2012 summer hockey schools

WATERFORD, MI – The Metro Jets have announced that they will be hosting a hockey school this summer at Lakeland Arena.

The Mini Mites and Squirts school is scheduled for July 16-20, while Squirt Travel and Bantam-aged players will receive instruction from July 23-27.

Camp times are Monday-Thursday from 9 a.m.to 4:30 p.m.and Fridays from 9 a.m.to noon. The camp will focus on three areas: power skating, on-ice skills (stickhandling, puck control, shooting, etc.) and off-ice training.

The cost of the camp is $280.

“This will be a very exciting school and we can’t wait to get started,” said camp director and Jets head coach Jason Cirone. “The instruction will be of the highest quality and the kids that come to our camp will leave with a greater knowledge of the game and a greater understanding of the basic fundamentals of the game.”

Ken Field, founder of Skating Dynamics and Battle Field Training Systems, will serve as the off-ice director. Field has over 15 years experience training players ranging from the youth level on up to the professional level.

Instructors and counselors for the school will be current and former Jets players.
