Eastern Lightning Spring Clinic
EASTERN LIGHTNING SPRING CLINIC 2014
Eastern Lightning has been providing a complete hockey education to the Eastern Connecticut hockey player since 1994. Organized and coached by former E.O. Smith High School Head Coach(’96-’05) Mike Iacampo, these clinics provide innovative instruction for all ages and skill levels.
The Summer Clinic(5/20-6/17) is designed to teach skills with a concentration on skating and hockey specific skills and awareness. Hard work is rewarded with a scrimmage at the end of each practice. Drills and scrimmages match players of equal talent to ensure a safe and challenging game for all. Unlike a summer day or overnight camp which only lasts a week, this experience will help your child to play over the course of 5 weeks. This clinic helps each child to be a better player and not just brush up on some skills.
