Coaches

Grayson Fertig will lead the efforts with support from a team of junior counselors.   Last winter Grayson served as Telluride’s hockey director as well as head coach for the midget team and mini-mites.  He will be passing on the hockey knowledge and skills he’s gained from playing the game for more than 35 years.  Additionally, he’ll be focusing on teaching the mental side of sports, a skill he honed during 7 years as 2 and 4man driver on the US Bobsled team where preparation, precision, and execution were what won races.  Over the last 16 years, Grayson has worked as a personal trainer successfully preparing high school, college, and NHL players for their seasons and he’ll be introducing your child to methods of physical training that will be the building blocks for a lifetime of wellness and sports performance.  Grayson has significant experience in the areas of mentoring, team building and leadership, each day’s activities will stress these aspects with the intention of further strengthening the character of the young boys and girls who are the Telluride hockey community.

A few questions

Stickhandling, shooting and passing in sneakers?  Practicing your craft while not having to worry about skating will allow your player to focus on the details that often get lost when we’re broadly practicing the game of hockey.  By the end of the week, each player will get thousands of repetitions that will lead them towards perfecting their skills.  By removing the speed that gets created on the ice players are able to slow everything down and see the nuances of what they are trying to work on.  

 

What will the physical training be like?  The goal will be to teach your child some fundamentals of how to take care of their body.  The activities will emphasize training coordination, balance, strength, stretching, body mechanics, and body awareness.  The week’s work will transfer onto the ice where we will implement the concepts this winter.  

 

How will it work with many age levels playing together?  Each day the kids will be broken into teams with each team having a similar balance of younger and older players.  Because the camp is focused on individual skill development an 8-year-old and a 15-year-old can both work towards mastery simultaneously.  The age differences will create opportunities to practice leadership and put the players with more developed skills into positions where they can try to teach others.
