About Creative Hockey Development Camps

The goal of our summer camp is to improve each player’s skills, attitude, awareness, creativity, and skating ability throughout the week.

Our camps are very well-organized.  Our programs are extremely structured and the players are supervised by our highly experienced staff.

We don’t just allow the maximum number of kids allowed on the ice, and then scream instructions at them while watching the first dozen perform the drill while the rest go through the motions.

Kids can’t learn that way.

Coaches can’t coach that way.

Nobody has fun.


What You Need

Hockey equipment, a healthy packed lunch – there is a snack bar on the premises – and a water bottle filled with water.

We find that the healthier the lunch and the healthier the snacks and drinks, the better the kids are able to focus, absorb what we are teaching them, and maintain energy throughout the day.

Meet Team Creative Hockey Development

The Creative Hockey Development Team

Creative Hockey Development was founded by Dusan Kralik, an elite hockey instructor, born in Bratislava, Slovakia, and who came to Toronto 25-years-ago to teach the sport that he loves.

In 2016, Dusan brought onboard, Daniel Erlich after his successful pro career in Sweden, Austria, and France. Daniel is a product of the OHL’s London Knights organization, who starred at the NHL’s San Jose Sharks training camps as a result of his superior skating, tenacity, hockey skills and hockey sense.
