Roundtable discussions after hockey camp are completed
*All registered Hockey School participants will recieve a "Team Hockey Indigenous" Jersey and they will be able to keep them once the Hockey Camp is completed.*
Once our Hockey Camp is completed, we will proudly host a Roundtable discussion where our ambassadors/facilitators will share their story, giving some motivation to all the Indigenous Youth and, Q/A will be last. This will be a great opportunity where the Youth will feel welcomed, get a chance to speak with our ambassadors, and create special memories with each other.
A great way to showcase integrity and comprehensive measures to become one together.

These camps can be an invaluable resource for players looking to improve their skills and advance their careers in the sport.

We want to lay down the foundation of Indigenous to Indigenous production, development, experience, and instruction.
