Canes Summerfest Set for July 23-26 at PNC Arena
Prospects Development Camp, Canes Elite Players Camp and Summerfest Celebration highlight the mid-summer celebration of Canes hockey.
RALEIGH, NCRon Francis, Vice President and General Manager for the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team will hold Hurricanes Summerfest – a mid-summer celebration of Hurricanes hockey – from July 23-26 at PNC Arena. Hurricanes Summerfest will focus around the team’s Prospects Development Camp and Canes Elite Players Camp, and will wrap up on Saturday, July 26, with the Summerfest Celebration.

The team’s Prospects Development Camp will see most or all of the Hurricanes’ 2014 draft class, some of the team’s previously-drafted players and other camp invitees descend on Raleigh for a week of training. Beginning on Monday, July 21, fans can enjoy exclusive coverage of the Prospects Development Camp’s on-ice sessions on www.CarolinaHurricanes.com, and the camp’s on-ice sessions will be open to the public beginning on Wednesday, July 23. A complete roster and a detailed schedule for the Prospects Development Camp will be released in early July. The week will wrap up with a game and skills competition on Saturday at noon as part of the Hurricanes Summerfest Celebration.

The Canes Elite Players Camp will take place in conjunction with the Prospects Development Camp and is open to U-18, U-16 and U-14 AAA and AA players. Participants will use the NHL ice and facilities at PNC Arena, and will receive nearly-identical training and instruction from Hurricanes coaches and staff as do the players at the Prospects Development Camp.

Players in the U-12 AAA and AA, U-10 AA and U-8 advanced levels can register for the Canes Power Skating Clinic, to be held from July 22-26 at PNC Arena. For one hour per day, participants will receive power skating instruction from elite skating coach Kim Muir. Muir has an extensive background that includes mentoring players from the Hurricanes’ American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate, the Charlotte Checkers.

From July 25-26, hockey coaches from all levels can learn directly from Hurricanes staff at the Canes Coaches’ Clinic. Coaches will discuss the proper way to devise a practice plan, teach team systems and offer tips on implementing systems and coaching special teams.

Details and registration information for the Canes Elite Players Camp, Canes Power Skating Clinic and the Canes Coaches’ Clinic can be found at www.CarolinaHurricanes.com/summerfestcamps.

Encompassed in Hurricanes Summerfest will be the team’s annual Select-A-Seat nights, when season-ticket holders choose their seats for the upcoming season. Hurricanes Summerfest will wrap up on Saturday, July 26, with a Summerfest Celebration complete with a final Canes practice and skills session, more than 20 inflatables, games and other experiences, free giveaways, guest speakers and autograph opportunities with Prospects Development Camp players. Admission and parking are free, and most of the activities will take place inside PNC Arena.
