Current member of the Kalamzoo Wings of the ECHL, Blake Friesen returns for his second summer as our lead instructor and he is joined by former NHL defenseman Mike Stuart who was a draft pick of the Nashville Predators and played for the St. Louis Blues. Together, they will share their passion for the position with young defensemen who largely go ignored in their young careers when it comes the true coaching aspects of the technical position in hockey.
“Blake does an outstanding job of connecting the dots for the defenseman in all aspects of the game. I know my son made an A team for the first time as a first year because of Blake’s attention to detail and coaching.” Parent of a camp participant in 2009.
“I learned more than I thought I could in Blake’s D-man camp last year. He treated us like we were his age and it was fun. We worked hard the full hour.” Player from the 2009 camp.
“The parents were impressed as Blake used new on ice tactics and methods to teach the players the position. As a long time coach, I must say, this is a camp for all defenseman. If you serious about hockey and this position, don’t be left behind.” Long time coach and observer of the camp.
