Our Camps

Since 2011 the Black Hills Hockey Academy has been a fixture in the South Dakota Summer Hockey Scene and has since expanded to host camps in Minnesota, Wyoming and Kansas. BHHA athletes have gone on to have great success at local and national hockey levels.  We believe in reinvesting into the local minor hockey programs. Your commitment to the BHHA has allowed us to do so.  Since we started, the BHHA has donated over $16,500 back to local minor hockey teams and programs.  We look forward to working with you again in 2022!

Pre-Season Conditioning/Skills Camp

 

Pre-season camp will be held in Rapid City SD from the End of August through the beginning of October. This camp is recommended for athletes born in 2013 and older and will include 2 or 3 ice sessions per week leading up to tryouts in October. There will be two or three groups that will be capped at 26 skaters and 3 goalies per group. 1 day each week we will focus on skill development. On Skill days we will be working on skating and puck-handling skills including but not limited to edge work, body position, puck control, poise, puck confidence, power skating, using cross overs to build up speed, puck placement, shooting and scoring goals. Some of the work will be done via large group, and some will be done via small group/station work.  The other 1-2 days each week we will focus on speed and conditioning. Instructors will challenge the young skaters with high tempo drills, races and small area games that focus on puck movement and completing tasks at a high tempo. By pushing the athletes to levels of play they didn't know they were capable of, this camp will pay dividends when it comes time for try outs in October. In this portion of camp we will be working on skating and puck-handling skills including but not limited to edge work, body position, puck control, poise, puck confidence, power skating, using cross overs to build up speed, puck placement, shooting and scoring goals.

This years camp Dates and Times will be announced soon. Each three hour ice block is divided into 1 hour sessions with a flood after the second skateYour son or daughter will be in either one of the hours depending on their age. I will divide the groups once I have everyone registered.

TESTIMONIALS

“As a parent, I liked the length of camp and ice time for the money I paid. I also really appreciated the meals being included and that they were healthy for the kids - THANKS! Sara enjoyed them, too! We will be coming back next year and will recommend it to fellow players in the Pierre area.”

-Carla Bachand, Pierre, SD

"Last year was our son Jacksons first year at the Black Hills Hockey Academy Camp.  Jackson was excited to go every day and came home eager to show off some of his new skills.  Jackson not only learned more about playing hockey but his self confidence and love for hockey shot through the roof!"
