Players looking to fine tune their hockey skills before the upcoming season will have an opportunity to work with current and former college coaches and players at the 35th annual Silver Bay Blue Line Club Hockey School.

The camp July 23-27 will give players at least an hour of ice time as well as one game during each day at Rukavina Arena. Players can work on skills and both on and off the ice and College of St. Scholastica assistant coach Sean Bartlette and North Shore Storm boys head coach Mike Guzzo as well as coaches from Mankato, Hermantown and Hayward, Wis.

Other counselors include University of Minnesota Duluth captain Sydney Brodt and current and former players from the University of Vermont and Concordia College in Moorhead, Minn., and Jack LeBlanc of Cloquet-based junior hockey team Minnesota Wilderness.

The camp features the only arena ice on the North Shore over the summer.

The cost for the camp is $175 for Mites — kids age 8 and under — and $275 for kids age 12 and under. The camp is also open to high school and bantam level players for $225.
