OneGoal is a newly formed nonprofit organization comprised of a coalition of USA Hockey, Hockey Canada, International Hockey Industry Association, National Hockey League (NHL), the NHL Players Association, rinks, equipment manufacturers, retailers, and many others across North America who are involved with hockey.
The "one goal" of this group is to build greater awareness and understanding of youth hockey so parents can make informed decisions about involving their families in the sport. For many of us who didn't grow up with the game, OneGoal makes it easier and less intimidating to join in on everything that hockey has to offer.

Summer Strength and Conditioning Camp with Kevin O'Donnell:
· Power and Strength Training. Developed in our dryland training room. Players progress with a technique first approach with the goal of becoming a stronger, leaner, and faster player.
· Biomechanics. Our players learn the importance of body position to produce greater force and enhance their speed on the ice.
· Flexibility and stability. We use the most current research and methodology to ensure players increase both their range of motion and their stability within that motion.
· Injury Reduction. Our coaches are experts at identifying and correcting muscle imbalances and joint compensations which may potentially lead to improper movement patterns and injuries.
· Energy System Development. We use well-designed hockey specific strategies to condition the athletes’ without overtraining them.
