Campers will have two on-ice sessions per day. These sessions will be used to develop skating, puck-handling and position specific skills (including goalies) appropriate for each age group and skill level. Campers will learn from our qualified staff of elite level hockey players and goalies that will be able to pinpoint areas for every individual to focus on improving throughout the camp and upcoming season.
There will be two off-ice sessions per day. The first will typically be used to take campers through a workout, appropriate for all ages and skill levels. The second will be used for team-building games and exercises. We want to expose our campers to the importance of physical fitness and team camaraderie in becoming, not only a better individual player, but also a better teammate.
One off-ice session per week will be reserved for the campers and their parents to write in and ask questions to Dylan and his family members. Through this interactive experience, we hope that all of the campers and their families are able to have any questions answered about what life is like in the NHL, what life was like growing up, or simply anything they want to know about Dylan and his journey.
The Larkin family's bond over the game of hockey is one that has an impact not only in the community where they learned the game, but also amongst themselves. Dylan, Colin, Adam, and Ryan Larkin grew up on the ponds of Michigan and learned to play hockey at Lakeland Ice Arena. Going their separate ways on their hockey paths, all became NCAA Division I hockey scholarship athletes. Together again, giving back to the rink they grew up on, they established the Larkin Hockey School in the summer of 2016 with rink manager Brad Martin.
