Golden Minor Hockey to host first hockey school

This will be the first time the association has put together a hockey school in Golden.

The Golden Minor Hockey Association will be hosting a minor hockey school that will give local players the chance to learn about power skating, dry land training and much more.

This will be the first time the association has put together a hockey school in Golden.

“It is good for early development and also gets players on the ice earlier in the season,” said Tyler Gulliford, who is helping organize the camp.

Meghan Jones will be at the camp running the power skating aspect of the event.

Jones will bring 27 years of experience to the students.

“She is out of Canmore, Alberta. Having a power skating instructor on the ice with them helps their individual skills. Jones does camps all the time and has worked with everyone from little kids to the pros,” Gulliford said.

Ty Davidson, the Golden Rockets head coach, will be running the technical side of the camp while dry land training will be hosted by Shape Up Fitness

“It is going to be a full on hockey school. We are trying to get local kids involved and developed. We will have at least one ex National Hockey League player coming to the school with plans being made to bring in more talent,” Gulliford said.

In every session there will be a specific skill that is the focus. Skating, puck handling, shooting, and passing will all be covered during the course of the camp.


All the information about the school is on the Golden Minor Hockey Association website or a Facebook page at Golden Minor Hockey School. The camp will cost $225 per player with an early bird deal of $175 per player if the player is registered before July 15.

Registration will include a free jersey and players must be independent skaters.
