Programs + Camps

"Absolute Hockey is first class in every way. From the on ice instruction, to the dry land training, Absolute Hockey provides an incredible learning environment in a fun atmosphere. My son Blake developed new skills, met new friends, and thoroughly enjoyed the camp. I would recommend this camp to anyone."

Rob Kelly

"My son has been attending Absolute Hockey School’s summer camps and Pre-Tryout skates for the last four years. Tom and his team provide a wide variety of skill development drills, while motivating, encouraging and providing my son with a fun opportunity. This has increased my son’s skill level and his love of the game. I highly recommend this school and my son is looking forward to summer camp again this year. Thanks guys!"

Cynthia Tuck, Newmarket, ON

"Absolute Hockey School has been part of our minor hockey life for the past four years. Tom Campbell's on-ice leadership, thoughtful drills and commitment to improving each player is visible to everyone that watches his clinics and camps. Not only could we see improvements in our son's hockey specific skills but Tom's quiet confidence and coaching style lends to an overall positive effect on the players' attitude and outlook. I would highly recommend both the summer camp and clinics to anyone with hockey playing children who have an interest in taking their hockey skills to the next level."

Sue, "A Grateful Hockey Mom"

"My son went to his first clinic with Tom a year ago. He was a little reluctant to go because he didn’t know any of the other kids, but Tom made sure that he felt welcome and that he got to know the other players. My son enjoyed it and felt so comfortable that he asked to go to Tom’s summer camp last summer too! Tom makes sure that [the kids] are having fun while they are developing their skills. Tom has really boosted my son’s confidence and his skill. I wasn’t surprised when [my son] asked to go to more of Tom’s clinics and his summer camp this year too. Thanks Tom – you really have made a difference for us!"

Jenn C., Sharon, ON

"We were referred to Absolute Hockey by another Coach and hockey parent in 2016. My son, Dylan attended Absolute Hockey School and he absolutely loved it. 2016 being the first year at this camp and not knowing the coaches or other players, my son was a little nervous on Day 1 but he immediately made friends and was full stories to tell after each day. Thank you Absolute Hockey!"
