Summer Skills Camp

The AJH Summer Skills Camp starts next week - July 20th - August 21st.
We have had a tremendous interest from returning and new players filling our maximum skaters allowed on the ice!
Harlan is looking forward to meeting all players and parents over the course of the camp!

Keep in mind that we are following County and City protocols for a safer environment during the pandemic - so please wear your mask entering and exiting the rink.
We will also be temperature checking for each player before each session.

Pitkin County’s Recovery Plan for COVID-19 to make Aspen safer and healthier means we all must follow the five commitments of containment:

  1. I will maintain six feet of distance from anyone not in my household
  2. I will wash my hands often
  3. I will cover my face in public
  4. I will stay home when I’m sick
  5. I will seek testing immediately and self-report if I experience symptoms

Hockey Share 10,000 Puck Challenge
What is the 10,000 Puck Challenge?
10,000 Pucks is a way for players to track their shots 365 days a year. This summer AJH will host a contest to see who can shoot the most pucks. The contest runs from June 10th - August 31st. Players can begin tracking shots at any time, but only shots logged during the contest dates will be counted toward the contest totals. The goal is to not simply focus on the number of shots but on the setting and achieving of goals for hockey players. Best of all, 10,000 Pucks is free for all users!
Players are encouraged to consistently work on their game each week vs. shooting all of their pucks at the end of August.

Registration Links:





Prizes
The first athlete in each age group to register for the 10,000 puck challenge will receive a wraparound off-ice stick protector.
There will be prizes awarded at the end of the challenge in August.



Additional Off-Ice Workouts are listed below:
