Clinics


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.

 Elite Summer D-Program 2020' - $1550   Sold out!!!

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 and 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. There will be seminars throughout the summer on nutrition and sports psychology. Brian will use the latest timing systems from Brower Timing to track the players speed and mobility development through the summer. Additionally, we have teamed up with CCM to incorporate an equipment presentation and demo day this summer! 

In congruence with our holistic approach, classroom time will also be included.  Blueline Hockey has made an investment in the state-of-the-art Thunder software from XOS Solutions.  This will allow Brian and his staff the chance to instruct in a classroom setting, developing the players overall IQ and understanding of the most difficult position in hockey!  Brian will take the on-ice theory and supplement with strategic classroom topics that will also be incorporated during ice sessions.
