What Skaters Learn at Super Camp
Each year, Super Camp provides a comprehensive, full-body-and-mind training experience for young skaters with on-ice and off-ice instruction:
- strengthens performance through working on jump techniques, stroking skills, edges, and strength conditioning;
- refines artistry through dance classes, yoga instruction, and body awareness training both on and off the ice; and
- builds mental strength & sportsmanship through discussions on sports psychology, leadership, nutrition, competing, etc.

Take advantage of the opportunity for optional private lessons during the week, too. You can request lessons with certain G2C coaches to hone key skills. These lessons are booked on a first-come, first-served basis, and slots fill quickly.
