This camp is a skill development and identification opportunity open to male and female athletes, both with and without disabilities, over the age of 12 (born in or before 2007). Anyone interested in building their tactical and technical skills with goals of one day being part of Team Ontario and/or Team Canada are welcome to attend! Instruction will be led by WBC National Academy Director Michael Frogley alongside Ontario Junior Head Coach Kathy Ludwig and other Ontario coaches.
