The Heartland Adult Camp is offered to players 18 years of age and older. Players of all skill levels are welcome into our program. We offer three skill groups to choose from: Novice, Intermediate, and Advanced. Each group is limited to 30 skaters and two goalies. All adult campers will have the option of seven hours of ice time each day!

Novice groups will consist of low-level to intermediate players. Intermediate groups are intermediate level and low-level advanced players. The advanced group is for advanced level players only. Each group will receive 1.25 hours training sessions in the morning and the afternoon. There will be a one-hour instructional scrimmage for each group in the early evening. There will also be 3.5 hours of optional ice time every night from 8:30 p.m. to 12:00 a.m. for private lessons, specialized clinics, skill development and pickup games. We will also conduct a very comprehensive and educational classroom/video review session each day utilizing our high-tech, simultaneous video analysis system.

There will be a one-hour power shooting session each day utilizing our radar guns and electronic display modules. Optional recreational activities include swimming, water skiing, boating, fishing, golf, tennis and roller hockey. On-ice training sessions will emphasize improving individual hockey skills including skating, passing, shooting, stick handling, etc. We will also focus on team play, as all campers will be taught effective offensive attacks, successful defensive strategies and learn from critiqued, video-taped team scrimmages.

Steve Jensen and his coaching staff will introduce you to innovative combination of on ice training and classroom instruction. On the ice you will be taught a graduated series of individual skills that will help you improve your skating speed, your skating agility and skating power. You will also learn to improve puck control, decking, shooting, passing and checking.

Unique Approach

Our unique approach of station training, at a ratio of six campers to one coach has proven to be the most effective instructional method. During our evening sessions, you will participate in controlled scrimmages where our experienced professional coaches will continuously provide commentary - with our state of the art sound system - and advice to each player on an individual basis.

Personalized Instruction

All campers will also learn and practice there shooting skills on a daily basis at our dry land training center. You will receive personalized instruction that will help you improve your wrist shot, snap shot, backhand and slap shot. We will utilize our camera digital video and sports radar guns to help you increase your shooting speed, accuracy and quickness.

Classroom Instruction

In addition, Steve and his staff will work with all campers in a classroom setting to review and discuss individual and team concepts. We will diagram important offensive and defensive stratigies in the classroom setting, that will help you become a better player. We will also video tape all evening scrimmages and critique positional play and personal reaction in our classroom setting.

Recreational Activities

We also offer to all of our adult campers a wide variety of recreational activities and optional training activities off of the ice. You will be encouraged to utilize our synthetic ice surface, roller rink, power shooting range and weight room. Our recreational options also include, tennis, golf, swimming, water skiing, boating, fishing and kyaking.
