It is with a heavy heart that my wife and I decided to cancel Lake of the Woods Hockey School for 2020. Anyone that has already registered will receive a full refund. We had considered just trying to reschedule for a later time in the summer, but for the safety of our players, parents, grandparents, and staff it is best to wait. With COVID-19 lurking in the back of our minds we would feel terrible if anyone would become ill from exposure during our camp. We have greatly enjoyed working with all of the players for the past 25 years. It has been fun getting to know new families and making new friends. Thank you so much for your support in the past and we hope to return stronger than ever in 2021.
Good luck to you all and please be safe.

Don Krause, currently the MN Hockey CCM High Performance (HP) 15 Head Coach, has designed a complete and sequential format that builds upon the foundations set during the preceding sessions. Having coached for over 30 years, he has worked with professional, college, junior, high school and amateur players to help them maximize their potential.

Coach Krause has compiled a high quality staff to meet the needs of all the players. Teaching young players about the great game of hockey and helping them to develop their hockey skill in an enjoyable style are the goals of the Lake of the Woods Hockey School.

Lake of the Woods Hockey School concentrates on teaching the most effective techniques for skating and stick handling success. As a player improves their individual skills, it is apparent that they will also be more valuable to their team. Our focus on technique is fueled by our sincere desire to make the game enjoyable for all participants. We clearly understand that we all tend to have more fun when we feel confident in our abilities.

The feedback that Lake of the Woods Hockey School provides is direct, immediate, and accentuates the positive. Skating with the players, our instructors interact to communicate and demonstrate proper technique. Group numbers are limited to ensure that proper teaching and learning takes place.

Lake of the Woods Hockey School provides professional training at extremely competitive rates. We believe the best way to improve hockey skills is to apply proper skating and stick handling techniques in a structured environment where quality repetition can create positive habits. Quite simply put, the better you can skate and stick handle, the more likely you are to improve as a hockey player. 

We would rather concentrate on the most important keys to hockey success on the ice. You get results at an affordable price. Lake of the Woods Hockey School is the best investment you can make as a hockey player!
