Summer is just around the corner, and for young hockey enthusiasts, that means one thing: it’s time to hit the ice and take their skills to the next level.

Both the Panthers Summer Skills and Girls Hockey Camps sold out last summer, so the Ice Den  added additional groups in order for everyone to participate.

The girls camp hosted 20-25 girls in 2022, and the skills camps welcomed 55-60 players.

“They gain knowledge about game situations while working on their skills and making new friendships,” said Hunter Balkjy, Recreational Hockey Coordinator of the Ice Den at 3299 Sportsplex Drive in Coral Springs.

Players have two on-ice sessions and two off-ice sessions. On-ice consists of skill drill-based stations, battle drills, and scrimmages. Off-ice is run by a gym instructor who also works with the travel teams.

The camps, which have been held for the past five years, all take place at Panthers Ice Den. The Skills Co-Ed Camp is from June 19 – 23 from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m., and The Girl’s Camp is from June 26 -29.

“We hope our girls camp is able to bring girls together from South Florida and help grow the girl’s side of the game,” Balkjy said.

All camps are coached by fully certified USA Hockey Coaches that also work with the travel teams.

“Our girls camps also have a fully female coaching staff as well as female coaches that have played AAA all the way up to pro-women hockey,” Balkjy said. “We’re also hoping with enough girls; we will be able to have at least one travel team this coming hockey season.”
