Hockey brings you to MIAMI. We will provide the finest in creative hockey in¬struction within a total, disciplined, organized and enjoyable hockey atmosphere. All activities are geared toward the athlete’s development as a player and indi¬vidual. A player’s development is largely determined by the attitude and effort displayed.
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT?
We provide a dedicated full-time staff that ensures the best on and off-ice experience in a disciplined, enthusiastic, SAFE and fun atmosphere at a very reasonable cost. Our Varsity Coaches are the integral core of our coaching staff. Each of our 5 programs is different, and builds upon each other to improve and challenge returning students.
WHAT ABOUT SUPERVISION?
Don’t worry about sending your hockey player away from home. Our “alumni” regularly compliment us on our excellent on and off-ice staffs, along with our high levels of supervision. Our return ratio is over 50%. The players are having a fantastic time. Parents are definitely happy!
HOW CAN I REGISTER?
Miami Hockey School has two ways to register. Online registration is the recommended way to register for Miami Hockey School. You will instantaneously know if you got into the week/s you wanted. There is also a payment plan available through the online registration only. You may also mail in your registration form but the camp may be full by the time your form is received. Full payment is required when mailing in the registration form. Credit cards and checks will be accepted when mailing in the registration.
HOW WILL I KNOW IF I WAS ACCEPTED?
A confirmation email will be sent directly after your registration has been accepted. You will then be instructed to download the final information sheet and medical forms (which need to be brought to camp with you).
WHAT ABOUT ROOMMATES?
Roommate request is your preference. We will make every effort to accommodate the request. Sometimes, the roommate requested does not apply, doesn't get into the program, or does not request you! You both must request each other for the campers to be roomed together. Requests must be made at least 2 weeks prior to arriving at camp. In the case of more than one name requested, only the first name will be honored. The roommate "triangle" (3 campers all requesting one or another) cannot be accommodated. All roommates will play on the same team. We do not guarantee any other team assignments or triples. In some cases triples will be necessary, but we will not accommodate for triple requests.
We cannot guarantee any other team assignments but will work with the camper to help make Miami Hockey School an enjoyable experienced.WHAT SHOULD I BRING TO CAMP?
Remember to check your skates to make sure they fit.
**Miami will supply a small refrigerator in every room**
Boarding students will receive room and all meals beginning Sunday night, with last meal Friday, lunch. Day campers will receive lunch and dinner meals along with the boarding students. This enables them to be with their group the entire day. Commuter students join their group each morning following breakfast. (A commuter schedule will be provided at check-in.)
PHONE/CALL HOME NIGHT
In an attempt to avoid distractions, limit homesickness, and assist the youngsters, we will have "phone call night" for the players to call home on Wednesday evening of each week for all programs except the Collegiate Program. Should special needs arise, please let us know at registration. Please do not send your hockey player to camp with a cell phone they are prohibited!!
It's great to have parents watch our program . . . we encourage it. But we ask that parents do not interfere during the camp. For security purposes we ask all parents to remain out of the locker rooms, dormitory, and dining hall. Should parents be staying the week, a VISITORS PARKING PASS is required to avoid parking tickets. Please call our Parking Office at (513) 529-8535 for the office location. Besides surface parking, there is an inexpensive very convenient hourly parking garage adjacent to the Ice Center.

WHICH CAMP SHOULD I ATTEND?
Miami Hockey School strictly follows USA Hockey guidelines:
WHAT IF I AM NEW TO HOCKEY?
We routinely get players new to hockey attending our camp; this is something not new to us. Our coaching staff has the experience, skill, and knowledge to develop lesson plans that suit the skill level of all participants. All we ask is the participant has an open mind, is ready to work hard, have fun, and improve.
GIRLS VS BOYS CAMPS
We provide a separate girl’s camp so they can participate against other girls and boys can participant against boys. There are not many all-female overnight camps in the country and we are fortunate enough to have enough girls to provide these unique options. Please help us promote and grow the girls' game by coming to Miami Hockey School with friends.
