The camp is aimed at competitive youth skaters (L2T, T2T and Juniors) who wish to improve their technique. The laps are kept low at the camp, as the skaters focus on their technique, there is lots of video analysis of both the camp skaters and of world cup and Olympic athletes.
The Head coach for the camp is Sue Ellis from Rothesay, New Brunswick. Sue is a Level 4 NCCP coach, and 2002 US Olympic Short Track Team Head Coach. For more information about Sue and her camp, click on, http://www.ellismethod.net/bio.html, or http://www.ellismethod.net/home.html.
