2022 FOX Hockey Female Development Camp
Fox Hockey is extremely excited to bring back our All-Female Development Camp in 2022! Our 2022 lineup includes a very talented and experienced lineup of instructors including Sam Isbell (PWHPA), Karell Emard (PWHPA), Kaity Howarth (PWHPA) and Kendra Fortin (Bemidji State University Beavers).
At Fox Hockey we firmly believe that young female hockey players need female role models to look up to as they progress through their hockey journey. This talented group of instructors looks forward to providing a fun and positive atmosphere for players to improve their skating, shooting, passing and puck protection skills. This week long camp offers two on-ice sessions per day, while also including sessions on leadership, off-ice hockey specific training and off-ice cooperative games.
