Summer Hockey Camp

August 10-14, 2015

Registration begins March 9, 2015

This year we are once again offering an advance/travel camp. Players will be divided into groups based on skill level.

The Delaware Community Hockey Office will once again be hosting the Blue Hen Hockey Camp for the summer of 2015. The camp is under the direction of Former Professional Hockey Player Coach M. F. Schurman and current head UD Ice Hockey Club Head Coach Rocco Romenalla

The highlights of M.F’s pro career include playing on a line with boyhood idol Gordie Howe with the Hartford Whalers in the 1979-80 season.  He also played on championship teams with the AHL Maine Mariners in 1978-79 and 1983-84, and the WIHL Spokane Flyers in 1977-78.  M.F. was a midseason all star selection in the IHL in 1978-79, scoring the winning goal for the North team in the all-star game and the CHL in 1982-83. 

M.F. has been teaching hockey skills and power skating for more than 30 years.  During this time he has worked with all levels from beginners through professional players.

Romanella is a USA Hockey Level 4 certified coach and has evaluated in the New England, Massachusetts, Atlantic and South East Districts. He also has been a Head Instructor for Pro Ambitions hockey camps and will participate this summer in high level camps such as the Elite Edge Showcase in Nashville, TN, Massachusetts Development Camp at Cushing Academy, and the Harvard Hockey Camp at Harvard University.

Camp will focus on every facet of the game of ice hockey and they will be working with your child to ensure their development over the 5 day camp. Held in the Rust Ice Arena from August 10-14, 2015, the camp will utilize the talents of the local UD hockey community, including members of the UD Club Hockey team as well as several professional coaches.
