Frequently Asked Questions
Frequently asked questions
What age does my child have to be for your camps?
We recommend kids ages 6-14.
What level of hockey does my child need to play in order to attend a camp?
This is a big reason why Edge stands out from other camps. We take ALL levels of hockey players. Our staff are trained to teach to every level of player. Once we get on the ice, we assess the players and try our best to break them into small groups based on their skill level.
I don't think my 6 year old will make the full day. Do you offer half days?
We do not offer half days. We work on a progressive system throughtout the week so in order to get the true Edge Hockey School experience, we require all participants to attend the full day. We have had children as young as 5 that attend our camp and you would be amazed how a well ran camp that keeps kids engaged the full day can help the young ones to make it through the day. That is not saying they won't be exhausted on the way home though!
Can I choose what days my child will be attending the camps?
Unfortunately, no. This is a full day, week long camp. We work on a progression scale for all of our actiivities so every child is required to attend the full day.
Who are your instructors and what makes them "Elite"?
We take great pride in hand picking our staff every year. We choose great hockey players, combined with great people. Most of our staff have played Junior A, AAA, College, University, NCAA, WHL, OHL or NHL level. We also like to hire teachers and people who are great with children. We know the combination of a great athlete and someone who is great with kids is what makes our staff stand out from other hockey schools!
The drop off time does not work with my schedule. Am I able to drop my kid off earlier in the morning?
We work with all parents to make this week work for you. Once you receive your schedule, if there are issues, please contact Edge asap and we will do our best to accomodate your schedule.
What if I decide my child wants jersey cresting or lunch added after we register them?
We can add lunch and/or jersey cresting by etransfer or cash after you have registered. Lunch is $80 and jersey cresting is $25.
Does Edge offer power skating or other programs outside of their August hockey schools?
At this time, we do not offer other programs. We are focusing on making every week of hockey school as memorable and impactful as possible. However, there is a possibility that we will be looking at adding "off season" options. Stay tuned!
Are you guys affiliated with the Edge Hockey School in Calgary?
We are not. Edge Hockey Schools began in 1993 and has been around for 28 years. We work independantly from the school in Calgary that runs year round.
I see you have NHL players at some of your camps. Does every camp have players at them?
We love to bring NHL players out to as many camps as we can. We think it adds to the entire experience for the kids. It depends on the location and if we are able to get players to come and skate with the kids. Every year changes! Watch for NHL player announcements on our social media!
My kid doesn't know how to dress themselves. Will someone be there to help them?
Yes, we have staff that are trained to help kids get on and off the ice. If you are at the rink, we always welcome extra hands in the dressing room. However, if you are unable to be there, your child will be helped getting dressed.
Do you offer payment plans?
Do you offer a sibling discount?
Yes we do. For your second athlete, we offer $25 off their registration. (Same for third and fourth athletes) Use the code FAMILY at time of checkout to have this applied to your registration.
Are you a goalie school?
We are not a goalie specific hockey school. We offer a discounted rate for all goalies because of this.
