Tier 1 hockey

Tier 1 Hockey is a girls hockey development program. We offer clinics, coaching services, and teams for various ages and levels. We are dedicated to equipping girls with the skills and knowledge they need to reach their full potential on and off the ice.
Tier 1 Hockey LLC is not affiliated with MN or USA Hockey.

About the camp

On Ice

The on ice experience will include reinforcement of hockey skills, a focus on physical play that girls see in high school hockey and beyond, and a tournament to cap off the camp that will allow the girls to put their skills to the test.

Off ice, Tier 1 uses USA Hockey plans that are fun, age-appropriate drills that will help deliver agility, balance, coordination, strength and skill training that to complement on-ice skills.

Off Ice learning

A presentation by a female college hockey coach to share with campers about what she looks for in players she recruits as well as how she worked her way up to be a head coach of a women’s college hockey program.

Our Focus
Number 1

women coaches

Great coaching by women that have or do play at the highest levels as well as women that have extensive youth coaching experience.

Number 2

low Coach to Camper ratio

Girls will get the opportunity to really improve their skills as they will have one on one access to coaches.

Number 3

FuN!

Hockey at any level must be fun, especially with kids. We will cap off the camp with a super fun tournament that will allow them to get to know their coaches and peers better and put their new skills to the test.

What does hockey mean to you?

“Hockey is more than a game to me it is a lifestyle. I have seen with my own two eyes how much hockey takes you throughout your whole life. How the sport is not just a game it is a lifetime of memories and friends that you will never lose. It is the commitment of a player getting up to go to a cold rink when they don’t want too or putting countless hours out on the pond to
get in extra practice. Hockey is not just something I play here and there hockey will always be a part
of me.”
