WELCOME TO BEN LOVEJOY HOCKEY SCHOOL
2021 Camp Dates
BEN LOVEJOY HOCKEY SCHOOL
Union Arena, Woodstock VT
I am so excited to run my own hockey school in the Upper Valley. Since moving to the area in the Third Grade, it has been my home.
I grew up playing for Hanover Youth Hockey, Cardigan Mountain School, and Deerfield Academy. I then returned home to play for Dartmouth College before finally making it to the NHL with the Pittsburgh Penguins, Anaheim Ducks, Pittsburgh Penguins (again), New Jersey Devils, and Dallas Stars.
My goal for this camp is to teach young boys and girls from my neighborhood the hockey skills they will need to know how to play at the next level.
I look forward to getting to know the next generation of hockey stars from throughout the Upper Valley and, of course, having fun!

We are still finalizing details for camp and our numbers as we wait for more information about Vermont COVID-19 guidelines. As of now, we are planning to run 2 half day sessions for Summer 2021, tentative schedule is
9 AM-12 PM session 1 (mites)
12:30 PM - 3:30 PM session 2 (squirts and peewees)
*subject to change
We will update with 2021 as soon as we know more.
NO LOCKER ROOM USE: We won't be using the locker rooms. Kids will need to get dressed in designated areas outside and come in just to get skates on. If your child is in the first skating session (this will be emailed the weekend before camp), he/she can come dressed and just put skates on when entering the rink.
MASKS/HEALTH CHECKS: Counselors and coaches will wear masks as often as possible, especially when having close contact with a child (like tying skates). Counselors and coaches will have daily health checks when they arrive. Hand washing will be enforced often and there will be extra sanitizing stations at the rink. We encourage each child to have a mask as an option to use when working in close contact with counselors/coaches/other children. Our goal is to spend all our "off ice" sessions outside, working on puck handling, agility work, and some fun games.
FOOD: We will have a snack time (that you send with your child) for each group
COVID-19 WAIVER: We will be sending out a new waiver to sign prior to camp attendance. All attending camp (players, coaches, etc.) will need to be local to the Upper Valley or have spent 14 days quarantined in the area.
Thank you so much for your cooperation and patience as we are doing what we can to make this camp work this summer!
Look forward to working with your kids this summer!
A camp that focuses on hockey skills, skating development, teamwork, and fun.
