Local woman holding affordable hockey camp for girls 0
Brittany Agius is a former player of North Simcoe Girls Hockey. Currently, I she's a first year sports management major and Women's Varsity Hockey player at Brock University.
Hockey made a big impression in her life and she wants to give back to the community.
"Recently, I have completely planned, organized and budgeted an all girl's hockey camp, on my own, that I will be running in Midland this coming summer," says Agius.
"I have teamed up with a brand new company called Whip Hockey and they have generously sponsored me with jerseys, shirts, water bottles and stickers for the camp," says Agius.
The program she's offering is an All Girl's Ice Hockey Training Camp that will be instructed by all Female Varsity Hockey players from the CIS & NCAA.
This camp is different from all other camps offered, says Agius, because it has been designed by her, a former player of this league, highlighting areas where she believe local girls playing hockey can improve.
"My goal is to offer an educational athletic experience for girls at an extremely low cost for parents. This is a chance for girls in our area to spend three days with inspirational female hockey role models, while developing the skills required to compete at the highest level of play."
She understands how important role models and affordable programs are for area families.
"I had a rough childhood growing up in a single parent family with no father and no budget for sports. I understand that not every girl grows up with a dad to work on skills with them. I also understand that not every family has the money to put their kid in hockey camps."
Parents are struggling to afford the high costs that come with hockey. In regards to hockey camps specifically, she recognizes how expensive camps are.
"I have designed this camp for the kids, but with the parents in mind too. As you may or may not be aware, some camps can be as costly as $2500, however my camp is only $175."
Agius says her camp is something parents are able to put their daughter in that is in their budget range.
