GREAT FALLS, Mont., July 27, 2016 — The Great Falls Americans Junior A hockey team is excited to announce their 3rd Annual Americans Youth Pre-Season Hockey Skills Camp in September.

After earning their second consecutive Frontier Division championship as members of the North American 3 Hockey League (NA3HL) in March, the Great Falls Americans are looking to help the youth in the community improve their hockey skills.

The third annual Great Falls Americans Pre-Season Youth Skills Camp will be held on September 5-8, 2016 (Monday through Thursday) at the Great Falls Ice Plex under the direction of Americans head coach Jeff Heimel.

The camp saw over 35 players from many different age groups attend the four-night skills camp last September. The local hockey team looks to build off the success with a well-structured curriculum designed to help players prepare for the upcoming 2016-17 season.

Each evening session will last 75 minutes and be conducted by Heimel, his coaching staff and members of this year’s Junior A hockey team.

Once again, the camp will be run by Heimel and his coaching staff along with members of this year’s Junior A squad. Each camp will skate one 75 minute session per evening.

Similar to last year’s camp, they will offer a younger group (children under 12) and an older group (over 12) with the younger campers attending rom 5:30PM until 6:45PM and the older camp will go from 7:00PM until 8:15PM each night.

The cost of the camp is $105.00 for early registration (registrations received prior to August 31st) or $125.00 for anyone who registers at the door or after August 31st. At the Door Registrations will be held in person on Monday, September 7th at 4:30PM. Registered campers will receive a free Americans T-shirt.
