The season is ending, which is a good time to prepare for the future. This summer the 2018 IIHF Women’s High-Performance Camp will take place at the Sport Institute of Finland in Vierumaki, Finland, 7-14 July 2018.
The IIHF members from nations ranked in the top-28 of the IIHF Women’s World Ranking were invited to send some of their top U18 players, coaches and staff to the camp while the Women’s Hockey Leadership Development Program, where mentors from countries with top female hockey programs will educate the attendees on a variety of subjects, and the World Girls’ Ice Hockey Weekend Program for the recruitment of female players are also open for other countries interested in growing women’s hockey.
The IIHF is committed to the continuous development of the female game and with this camp that’s been held since 2011 will on one side focus on showing the players born in 2000 and 2001 and the coaches and staff joining them to Finland what it takes to become a world-class athlete in women’s ice hockey.
The players from different nations and levels will participate in mixed teams and learn both on and off the ice as will coaches, goaltending coaches, video coaches, team managers, equipment managers, strength and conditioning coaches, athletic trainers and nutritionists involved in the camp.
Beside these programs, the IIHF will prioritize the leadership and staff development initiatives at the camp in July. Find out more next month by visiting IIHF.com and subscribing to our social media channels on Facebook
