Hockey Center HDC Czech Republic in Pribram located near Prague, will be officially open to public in September. The center has already started with specialized hockey camps at the beginning of summer. A team of qualified coaches and hockey specialists was formed in the preparation phase and from July the center started to offer its services. In the first phase the HDC Czech republic is organizing summer hockey camps for children, as well as pre-season diagnostics and testing of hockey teams of all ages.
This week the Center started the third round of ice hockey camps for children between the ages of 7 and 13. Camps are mainly focused on the comprehensive preparation of players on and off ice. HDC put together a strong and numerous team of coaches which allow to work with children in small groups and coaches have much more time for more individual approach to every child.
From the very beginning the project has received support by well-known faces of Czech hockey. The first round of the ice hockey camps was attended by goalkeeper of KHL team Avtomobilist Yekaterinburg and member of the Czech national team, Jakub Kovář.
In addition to the weekly summer camps, the center has been preparing one- and two-day camps since September (when the season starts) aimed at development of specific individual skills such as shooting, skating development, stickhandling, peripheral vision, agility, etc.
The fact that the experts from HDC set the standard of quality to a top professional level is evidenced by the fact that the public media began to become interested in the activities of the center almost immediately after its establishment.
