2020 Fall Pre-Season Development Camps

The St. James Junior Canucks are committed to helping foster the development of young hockey players in the community. During the season, all Canuck players take part in various community events such as: AA Day, community club carnivals, and minor hockey practices. They are excited to give back to St. James minor hockey; a community that helped develop them into the players and citizens they have become. An important initiative from the Canucks executive is to provide high-quality hockey development at an affordable price to minor hockey players in the St. James and the surrounding area. Our camps will aim not only to improve player’s skill level but to emphasize the importance of teamwork, work ethic and developing a positive attitude.
 
Our instructors for the camp are highly trained and certified coaches that have grown up playing hockey in the St. James Minor Hockey system. Assisting our head instructor are current players of the St. James Junior Canucks. Our instructors are thrilled to have the opportunity to provide quality skill-based instruction to young hockey players.
