On Ice Station Set Up
All goaltenders that attend our 5-day camps are in FULL participation mode from the time they check in. We are big believers that each goaltender must take some of the development responsibility upon them. At each station there will be a goalie participating in the drill, another goalie will be helping with the execution and set up of the drill (getting pucks, passing or screening) and 1 goalie off to the side working on a movement pattern that closely mirrors the skills being worked on in the drill.
Low Student/Instructor Ratio
The largest ratio that we have at any of our camps is 3:1, we want each and every student to get ample time in the net. With this low ratio we are able to offer instant feedback, coaching as well as an opportunity for the goalie to make corrections on the spot. There will be video stations each day where students will be filmed on an iPad, once their turn is complete the student will have an opportunity to watch the video with their instructor on the spot.
Quality and Experienced On and Off Ice Staff
Both owners of ATC Goaltending will be on and off the ice at EVERY 2017 camp, to assist in making your camp experience the best it can possibly be. This year’s staff will be the most experienced instructional group we have put on the ice to date! All of our support staff are current clients of ours as well so they can relate to what the students are going through on a daily basis.
Creating a Challenging yet Positive Environment
Our first goal for each participant is to have fun! The structure and effort required to complete our camps is very demanding and from time to time we have to challenge individual students so that they are able to dig down and get everything they can from their 5 day camp experience. We expect all goalies that attend our camps to work hard, pay attention and give their best effort.
2017 ATC GOALTENDING SUMMER CAMP CANCELLATION AND REFUND POLICY
In the event of serious injury, ATC will issue a camp credit valid for the next summer only. Under no circumstances will this be converted to a cash refund. The credit will be available for the next summer less a $50 administrative fee. If the athlete does not take advantage of the credit within one year, the credit will expire. The onus will be placed upon the student to utilize this credit. Please keep in mind that these credits are redeemable based upon availability. ATC has strict instructor/student ratios that will not be compromised to accommodate these credits. If you plan on using your credit you must do so as early as possible.
Serious injury, for the purpose of ATC Goaltending, means injury, or sickness, serious enough to prevent participation. Minor ailments like a cold will not result in a credit of any sort. The medical condition must prevent participation. All injury/sickness credit requests must be made formally in writing and be accompanied by a formal letter from your doctor.
ATC Goaltending does not provide refunds or credits for lost participation due to injury at camp. All participants are expected to be in superior, athletic condition in order to reduce the risk of any potential injury.
On a concluding note, ATC would like attending athletes and families to understand our thought process when coming up with this policy and procedure.
Most camps accept as many registrations as possible. They want to maximize their revenue. At ATC Goaltending, we have a different approach. Our approach is to provide attending athletes with one of the most significant development opportunities of their young careers. Each progression has a fixed registration number and instructor/student ratio. Each year we place many additional registrants onto wait lists due to the demand of the program. Since we turn potential registrants away, to preserve the camp structure and ratios, we have no method of recovering lost revenue due to cancellations.
However, to be fair to participants and our financial viability, we have instituted a refund cutoff of April 1st. Any requests for refunds will be denied after this date. We believe that we have put together a first rate camp/experience for each and every registrant. This has been achieved, in part, through the integrity of our structure and programming.
We would ask that you do not register if you are not in agreement with this refund policy.
