Dear Hockey Parents
I hope this email finds you well. 
This is Coach Dan McNamara from Elite Hockey Skills (EHS) and I was the Skills development coach for your Collingwood Jr Blues this past October - December 2022.  

I had a great time helping your kids improve their hockey skills and was impressed with how quickly they progressed.  Unfortunately, I could not continue in the new year as I was seriously injured taking a puck to the eye which sidelined me for three months. The good news is I recovered and am gearing up for a great summer hockey camp season.

I want to invite your player to join me for an unforgettable experience at one of my Elite Hockey Skills camps in Collingwood at Central Arena.  (Camps are Aug 7th-11th and Aug 28th-Sept 1st).


Players that were U10-U15 as of this past season are eligible to take their game to the next level before the season starts.  My camps are designed to elevate their overall skills, ignite their passion for the game and build a solid hockey foundation.


At my camps I pride myself in providing exceptional training, development, and correction with a 4-1 player/coach ratio.  


My camps have gained a reputation for fostering a supportive and competitive environment where players can flourish, and vastly improve their skills in a week going through a proprietary program of “25 Hours of Quality ice time”.  That’s almost a seasons’ worth of practices!


Here's why you should sign up for EHS summer camps:


  1. Comprehensive Skill Development: My camps provide expert coaching by Coach Dan with tailored training sessions to help your player improve their edges and overall skating abilities, stickhandling, puck control, puck placement, counter reactive movements, agility, shooting, hockey IQ and more.  We group our players by skill level not age, which allows them to flourish in a mixed skilled environment and take their own game to the next level. 
  2. Learn from the Best and get Personalized Feedback: Coach Dan and his team of handpicked junior leaders provide a 4-1 player to coach ratio which will give your player hands on guidance and feedback throughout the entire camp. They will provide personalized attention with consistent corrections helping your player refine their skills and flourish, while also providing valuable insights into game strategy, positioning, teamwork, decision-making and more.
  3. Competitive Daily Gameplay: Embrace the thrill of competitive scrimmage gameplay at the end of each day. Your player will be encouraged to apply and showcase their improved skills and hockey IQ against the other talented players in a super fun and friendly scrimmage competition. 


Next level performance requires dedication, perseverance, corrections, and the right guidance. 


Don't miss out on this incredible opportunity for your child to improve their skills and have a blast on and off the ice.
