Picking a Track for Your Skater
Designed to teach the fundamentals of hockey skating, we will teach skaters how to be more proficient and agile on the ice. Proper techniques for the game of hockey are the primary focus and all elements are taught without a puck. Skaters will learn the basic hockey stance, stride, knee bend, and other necessary fundamentals to be successful.
Figure Skate Track: Basic Skills
The first stage of skills forms a strong foundation for your skaters to progress at their own pace, working towards mastering each skill. Camp Chillin encourages skaters to trade in hesitation for excitement as they grow a love for skating. Skaters will harness skills such as agility, balance, coordination and speed.
Camp Chillin FAQ
Note that this is not a complete guide to all camp questions. Please remain patient and flexible, as policies and their procedures are still in flux at this time. If your child is signed up for camp, and you have questions about their registration or experience, please email our Camp Director at firstname.lastname@example.org
Does my child need to know how to skate to come to Camp Chillin?
No, your child does not need to know how to skate in order to come to Camp Chillin. As a matter of fact, approximately half our campers have not skated before attending camp. Campers have a skating lesson every day by a member of our coaching staff.
My child does skate but cannot tie their own skates tight enough. Is there someone there to help them?
Absolutely! All of our Camp Chillin counselors are skaters. We love to skate! Our camp counselors are happy to assist the children with getting their skates on and laced properly.
My child does not have their own skates. Do we need to get some?
You do not need to bring your own skates. You may use our rental skates for your week at camp. You do not need to pay extra to use our rental skates.
What age children come to Camp Chillin?
Children ages 5-14 may enroll in Camp Chillin.
My child does not want to do figure skating. Do you offer anything else?
Yes, we offer campers a figure skating or hockey track.
Do you have food at camp?
We serve campers a light morning and afternoon snack. This is included in the cost of the camp. Campers must provide their own lunch.
How should I dress my child for camp?
Campers need to dress for a cool setting. It is much cooler than outside. Campers need to bring a light jacket, gloves or mittens, and tall socks. Long pants are recommended. If the child is a beginner skater, a helmet is recommended (bicycle or hockey).
