The Withrow Ball Hockey Academy is a brand new ball hockey camp that will run from the first week of July through to the end of August. The camp will be located in the heart of Toronto’s Riverdale neighbourhood in the beautiful Withrow Park, home of the storied Withrow Park Ball Hockey League. The founder of the camp is none other than Withrow’s own Collin Wong, who has more than a decade of ball hockey experience at the provincial, national, and world level.
The camp is open for registration to children aged 6-14, with an early bird discount for those who sign up before May 1st. It will focus on individual skill development, with a strong emphasis on teamwork and sportsmanship. The camp is the first of its kind in downtown Toronto, and everyone involved is excited at the chance to grow the sport of ball hockey in the Withrow community.
The head instructors are Collin Wong, Stephen Alvo, Mac Savage and Derrick Wong. These young men have learned a great deal from the sport of ball hockey, and are now in a position to pass their knowledge along to the next generation of players. The camp is also proud to have Withrow’s own Brandon Barber (known by many as Pavel Barber) as a special guest instructor. Brandon brings with him a unique passion for the game, as well as a wealth of experience teaching youth at established programs such as the Gretzky Hockey School.
The main goal of this program is to grow the game through Toronto’s youth, and to maintain the standard of excellence that Withrow Park has established over its 40 years of ball hockey tradition. The instructors could not be more pleased to have the opportunity to give back to the Withrow community via the Withrow Ball Hockey Academy. Online registration is now open through their website; www.withrowacademy.com
