Webster Cyclones August Camp Info
These camps will occur if the NY Governor allows Youth Hockey Organizations to run practices by 8/7. WYHA operates these camps under USA Hockey insurance and until the NY Governor allows hockey team practices, organizations are prohibited from running any clinics/camps or practices.
Should the NY Governor hold up the start of the hockey season, then any player signed up will receive a full refund of the fee paid or a credit against any future payments due (if signed up for a payment plan).
Below is the description of the August Camps run by Webster Youth Hockey.
All participants are required to be registered for a Webster Youth Hockey Program or Team.
To register for these Camps, go to the "Camps, Clinics & Supplemental" under the PROGRAMS tab.

Quick change of direction, lateral mobility, and power development for rapid acceleration, transitions, turns and cross-overs to enhance players’ quickness in today’s small-area, rapid paced game.

Shooting & Scoring (9U+; Squirt-aged and above):

A combination of shooting targets and real goaltenders will be available to support training. Activities will be tailored to specific age-groups and talent abilities.
