Thanksgiving camp is intended for players of all skill levels between the ages of 6 and 15. Players are split into 2 ages groups; 6-10 years old (10 and under) and 11-15 years old (15 and under). Inside each age group the players are separated by skill level in order to create a competitive atmosphere at camp. Thanksgiving camp will follow the USA Hockey’s American Development Model (ADM) to maximize ice time and talent development.
Camp is not just designed for players; goalies will have world class training ran by Lightning alumni and Stanley Cup Champion Mathieu Garon. Mathieu will work with goalies on various skills such as positioning and goalie techniques throughout the camp.
