Summer 2021 Skills Registration

Welcome

WHA Summer Program 2021

We are excited to announce our WHA summer program!  This summer we will provide 5 different camps.  Each camp will require separate registration.  The camps will be run myself and the WHA skills staff.  Camps are open to both male and female players who have participated in a travel program or have equivalent hockey experience.  Each week will cost $125.  All sessions will be held at Centennial Ice Rink in Wilmette.

You may sign up for as many or as few as you'd like.
