The 6th Annual RinkRat 19 Hockey School welcomed 87 kids to Hockeytown, USA. We had 30 cities represented throughout MN, ND, and WI.
The first day of camp is always exciting and this year was no different…the check-in line went out the arena door and onto the sidewalk! What a blessing to walk in and see so many kids waiting for their RinkRat 19 jersey, helmet sticker, and gift bag.
Our schedule of on-ice and off-ice training is challenging; however, the kids didn’t shy away from the hard work. They embraced the fatigue and muscle soreness. The entire coaching staff was blown away by the encouragement, energy, and positivity the campers displayed throughout the week.One parent said it best, “Thanks for another GREAT camp. Our kids had sore legs from the drills and sore faces from the constant smiles!” That is the epitome of camp: working hard and having a blast doing it.
The last day activities are always a camp highlight. From the full-ice game to the water balloon fights to the picnic to the awards banquet…nonstop smiles and laughter.
We love putting on this camp every year, we love the game of hockey, and we are passionate about helping others elevate their game. Thank you to all the kids and parents who traveled to Hockeytown, USA, thank you to our entire coaching staff, and a huge thanks to our family. What an amazing week! Safe travels and see you all next year!
