Small Area Games Camps

Hockey Alberta’s Small Area Games Camp is a multi-week program, usually running for four or five weeks, with one or two sessions scheduled each week.

The focus of the camp is to utilize 3-on-3, cross-ice games at both ends of the rink to teach individual and team tactics, in a fun and competitive environment. The camps are open to male and female athletes.

With fewer skaters than a traditional game and special rules, small area games focus on the development of specific skills by increasing puck touches and repetitions, and on developing spatial awareness, thinking skills, and creativity.

Each camp accepts a specified number of skaters and goalies to allow for grouping and team formation. Goalies rotate through both nets within their assigned group. Teams will be changed on a weekly basis, and different game skills will be stressed each week.

Age eligibility may vary camp, so please check the detailed information that is included with the camp registration information. Every attempt is made to group players based on age and ability.

Small Area Games Camps, as well as a number of other specialized player development camps, are held at various locations throughout Alberta, and are coordinated by the Hockey Alberta Regional Centres.
