After a full year of intense planning and hard work, the Allstate All-Canadians Mentorship Camp is just seven days away. For the 42 Bantam players from across the country selected to attend the camp - life is about to change.
Gary Roberts' and the NHLPA scouting team have finished selecting 42 of the country's top Bantam players to spend next week (August 2-6) in Toronto participating in this once-in-a-lifetime hockey camp. For these kids, this will be the most rewarding event in their young careers.
For five straight days, they will be mentored on all aspects of the game by NHL players, alumni, nutritionists, mental coaches, and trainers. When you throw into the mix this being many of the young stars first visit to Toronto, it's clear this is going to be an unforgettable week. The five days of the camp will be broken down into a number of sessions focusing on skill, fitness, nutrition, mental skills, and life skills – providing the total package in hockey mentorship for these elite players.
On August 6th, the final day of camp, the players will lace up their skates and face off against each other in the first ever All-Canadians Mentorship Cup, a competitive game for camp bragging rights. NHLPA members Jason Spezza and Luke Schenn will each be coaching one of the teams for the game which will give these kids game experience they will never forget.
Complimentary tickets for the Mentorship Cup are still available for a limited time. Not surprisingly, tickets are moving fast in the hockey-mad Greater Toronto Area.
