Jussi Markkanen’s Goaltender Camp in Imatra 12-16.06.2017

Learn Jussi Markkanen's playing style, and gain practical tips and advice from a professional - knowledge and skills that would otherwise be impossible to learn!

During his career, Jussi Markkanen has played in the NHL (Edmonton Oilers, New York Rangers, Stanley Cup finals), Kontinental Hockey League (Lada Tolyatti, HC CSKA Moscow) and the European series (Ketterä, Tappara, Jokerit, EV Zug, Saipa).

In addition to Jussi Markkanen, the week-long camp will be supervised and run by goaltender coaches from Ketterä and Saipa, as well as other coaches of the clubs, as well as guest trainers and lecturers, whose names will be published later.

The Jussi Markkanen Goaltender Camp will be organised by Imatra Ketterä and Lappeenranta Saipa juniors in Imatra in June 2017. The venue is the new ice stadium in Imatra Ukonniemi sports centre with the main training held, of course, by legendary goaltender Jussi Markkanen.

Goaltenders of all levels born between 2002- 2006 are invited to the camp. Age groups and skill levels will be taken into account with the participants being divided into two groups.

The camp is designed to provide goaltenders with the opportunity to develop their own game skills, as well as provide models and tools to assist in their physical training. In addition, the camp will hold information events concerning, among other things, equipment, life as an athlete and development as a goalkeeper.

In connection with the camp, we will organize tailor-made lectures on, for example, selecting equipment and game theory. Olli-Pekka Äijälä, goalkeeper trainer for the Finnish Ice Hockey Association, will also visit the camp.

Accommodation and its supervision do not belong to the content of the camp. However, accommodation is possible close by to the ice stadium. For example, Imatra Spa is located around one km from the ice hockey stadium. Affordable rates have been arranged with Imatra Spa for camp participants and their family members.
