Brian's approach to his camps is a holistic one. He believes that a good player is an all around force. A good player should make his/her presence felt in the defensive, neutral, and offensive zones (in that order)!

His drills are designed to challenge any player at every level. Up tempo, high energy sessions force players to get out of their comfort zones and push the limits of what they can achieve.

As Brian has learned, the mental side of the game is just as important as the physical. He addresses how to gain that mental edge. Nutrition and strength and conditioning are also stressed and taught.

Brian's hands on approach ensures that every player will get individualized instruction. He intentionally keeps his camps extremely small and intimate so that he has time with each player in the program.


*** 2024 Summer D Program - Limited Availability ***


Elite Summer D-Program 2024' 

- $1,875 

 

This is the flagship program of Blueline Hockey. Brian takes a small group of the most focused Dmen at their age level and spends the entire summer honing and shaping their skill sets. This program works on the entire game of the defenseman. Most camps work hard on skill development, but overlook the defensive aspect of the game. Here, we do BOTH! 26 hours of on-ice instruction throughout the summer allows Brian and his staff to cover every aspect of the defenders' game. We work on skating, shooting, passing, angling, 1 on 1 theory, in zone coverage and much more. These players will be prepared for the upcoming season!    

We know that there is much more to the game than simply on ice play. That's why we call on other sports professionals to help contribute to our holistic approach. Julie Nicoletti from Kinetic Fuel will be partnering with us this summer. Julie is an amazing asset. She will be taking time out of her busy schedule as the founder of Kinetic Fuel as well as the nutritionist for the Boston Bruins to join our players for an informative seminar about fueling for success on July 1st. Dr. Elizabeth Ward from Peak Performance will be in person for a seminar on mental toughness and mental preparedness.  

We have been working all off season to offer an exciting new collaboration. EPS is one of the premier strength and conditioning facilities in the Northeast and it is located directly upstairs in the Foxboro Sports Center. You can take advantage of their expertise by intelligently combining and maximizing your on and off ice training this summer.  

In congruence with our holistic approach, off ice video sessions will be available to the players as well.  Blueline Hockey has made an investment in the state-of-the-art Catapult Thunder software.  This will allow our staff the chance to instruct through video and visual learning, developing the players overall IQ and understanding of the most difficult position in hockey!  Our staff will take the on-ice theory and supplement with strategic video topics that will also be incorporated during ice sessions.
