5th Annual Stingrays Youth Camp A SuccessAug 6, 2016
The South Carolina Stingrays, proud affiliate of the Washington Capitals, hosted the 5th Annual Stingrays Youth Developmental Hockey Camp this past week at the Carolina Ice Palace. The five-day event was a success, and saw 39 youth players hit the ice.
The camp, which ran August 1-5, featured two on-ice sessions per day for participants, plus off-ice training. Campers gained one-on-one skill development from instructors, plus former Stingrays Head Coach Spencer Carbery, who ran the camp. The event was Carbery's last in the Lowcountry before moving to Saginaw, Michigan for his new position with the Saginaw Spirit he accepted earlier this summer.
"It was a great week and I think the 39 players had a ton of fun," said Carbery. "It's great to see the turnout and some familiar faces that have taken this camp before, or those we we see often at the Coliseum for Stingrays games. The kids worked hard and had a great week. We gave them some pointers and taught them some skills, but most importantly they enjoyed the great game of hockey. For me, being my last camp here after starting this five years ago, it was a total blast."
On the final day of the Stingrays Youth Hockey Camp, participants played in a scrimmage pinning the White Team versus the Red Team for a chance at the coveted Stingray Cup. The White Team came away victorious. A photo gallery of the camp is available at the Stingrays Facebook Page.
