This week-long camp provides athletes with a unique opportunity to refine their skills while learning to become leaders on and off the playing surface.

The program aims to reset the athlete’s body and mind, re-energizing players for their season while they get the valuable time needed to sharpen their skills.

Athletes will participate daily in their sport of choice, as well as work on mobility, visualization, mindfulness, and strength & conditioning programs.  In addition to learning sports skills from seasoned coaches, athletes will leave with a new and powerful perspective on their athletic careers from daily lectures and workshops with leaders in sports and business.

The camp will feature a diverse group of facilitators participating in panel Q&A and small group discussions on the psychology of sports, mentorship, college recruiting, and various health and wellness topics.

Mike Weaver defense first camp (August 12 - 16, 2024)

Open to players ages 11 - 17

Harvey Hockey is excited to partner with Mike Weaver's Defense First Hockey School, the only professional defense hockey school of its kind. The cutting-edge approach of Mike Weaver's curriculum incorporates the fundamentals of hockey, as most hockey schools will do, but what makes Defense First uniquely effective is the time spent devoted to the mental skills and how to “think the game.” This attention to detail gives players an added advantage, that “extra element” that coaches and scouts are always looking for. 

“Defense wins championships.” Defense First allows defensive players to reach their maximum potential and achieve individual success. They provide on-ice instruction, discussions focused on nutrition, off-ice conditioning, goal setting, and instruction in work ethic/good character.
