There will be a Canada Winter Games training camp in Fredericton September 9th

Where: Odell Park (Waggoners LN, Fredericton)

When: September 9th 10am-5pm

The camp in Fredericton will focus on aerobic power fitness and imitation technique. Be ready for a tough day of training by drinking plenty of water the day before and having a well-balanced meal that is carb heavy. It is also a good idea to bring plenty of water and a bottle of sports drink to help keep electrolytes and salt in your body through the camp.

There is no ice available so this will be an off ice camp. Please dress appropriately for the outside weather.  Good snacks to bring through the day would be: fresh fruit, hummus and crackers, veggie sticks, fruit juice, etc.

The cost for the camp is $20, please sign up below by September 2nd.

***Online payment is preferred.  No cash will be accepted at the event.  If you must use a cheque please make it out to NBASSA Inc for the correct amount.  If no payment is received your attendance at the camp will not be counted.***
