2024 Summer Camp Information

*registration open NOW

Now entering our 20th season, the RMU Hockey Academy has become Pittsburgh's premier hockey camp destination.  Our goal is to provide players with an unparalleled camp experience that is competitive, challenging, and most of all fun. 

 Our low instructor to student ratio enables us to ensure each participant will receive individual attention throughout our camp, further enhancing the development of their overall skill set.  Players should register for programs based upon their USA Hockey 2024-25 age classification.  

Lead by two full-time hockey directors, our camps utilize players and coaches that have enjoyed success at the professional, college, junior, and Olympic levels.  Each instructor has been handpicked for their hockey knowledge but more importantly, their ability to TEACH the skills of the game.

Mite to Squirt Transition Camp - REGISTER
2015 Birth Year - June 17-21, 2024 * 12:00 PM - 2:20 PM 

After 2, 3, or maybe even 4 years of cross-ice and half-ice hockey, your 2015 birth year player finally gets to bump up to the full ice game.....but now what?

The full ice game presents players with a whole new set of rules and challenges such as positions, changing on the fly, faceoffs, and let's face it, a much larger ice surface to navigate.

Our Mite to Squirt Transition camp is designed to introduce full ice concepts to players in a fun and engaging atmosphere.  Each day we will introduce and review new terminology, rules, positional play and team play concepts through a classroom setting and the use of our sports court before hitting the ice for situational drills and controlled scrimmages.  The camp will conclude with a full ice game including referees!

When it comes to being an effective hockey player, there is no doubt that a heightened level of hockey sense (hockey IQ) is a primary contributor to successful play.  This camp is intended to elevate players’ understanding of concepts and high frequency patterns within the game.  It also aims to improve the individual skills needed for success within those concepts and patterns.  This camp includes visual education through NHL video clips, selected high frequency patterns and concepts of the day, skill development drills to address the skills associated with the theme of the day, and small area games to address the decision making ability and execution of skills under pressure within those game situations. 

Improve your hockey mind and skills with us in our new Hockey Sense Development Camp!
