The Boys on-ice training sessions were led on Friday by Kevin Gibson (Detroit Red Wings Amateur Scout) and on Saturday by Kevin Darnell (USA Hockey NTDP Assistant Director of Player Personnel).
The off-ice training sessions that players had on Friday and Saturday were run by Colin Smith (Detroit Edge Hockey, University Liggett Head Coach) and focused on body weight exercises, speed, explosiveness, balance, and proprioception.
In addition to being allowed to try out the newest CCM skate models and the newest CCM stick models during the practice and game sessions, the Girls had an open hour of ice on Friday to strictly demo the equipment and the Boys had their hour on Saturday!
