Barn Burner Provides Exciting Opportunity for Local Females

by Shanine Sealey

An exciting new opportunity for female hockey players from Martensville and the surrounding area was offered on February 22-23. The all-new Barn Burner: Female Hockey Development Camp was held in partnership with Martensville Minor Hockey association and consisted of a two-day hockey skills development camp that was geared towards female players in U7-U13 divisions. All skill levels were welcome from beginner to experienced.

Throughout this two-day camp, those attending had an opportunity to work on their passing, puck control and puck protection skills, as well as deception moves such as dekes and fakes. Other lessons included power skating with speed, agility & stickhandling, battling, angling & body positioning instruction and more.

Each age division focused on player development and advancing each and every participant to their next level. “Our number one goal is that your hockey player walks away from the camp feeling inspired, confident, and skilled-up with new drills and techniques to continue working on post-camp,” the event organizers noted.

Registration opened on January 30th and had a limited number of spots for each age division. This opportunity was well-received as registration for the camp was filled within less than 24-hours, with some age divisions filling to capacity in less than ten minutes.

One thing is 100% clear – there is a movement taking place – can you feel it? Parents of young girls in our province not only want their daughter’s trying hockey, but they also want them to have access to the BEST opportunities for growth and development at a young age. The interest is province wide, and as Associations come together to support one another, we anticipate great things for female hockey in the future,” organizers of the event stated.

This camp was possible thanks to the contribution of numerous volunteers and sponsors that came together to support hockey development.
