One of the most decorated female hockey players in history will be hosting a camp this summer at the North Shore Winter Club.

Olympic gold medallist and Hockey Hall of Fame member Cammi Granato will oversee the one-week camp bearing her name Aug. 12 to 16. The camp is designed to deliver a dynamic week of on-ice skill training and leadership development to help inspire the next generation of fame hockey players.

“The goal of our hockey school is to build confidence in young women and to empower them to be leaders both on and off the ice, in addition to enhancing their fundamental skills. I can’t wait to get on the ice with players from across British Columbia this summer,” said Granato.

Granato captained the U.S. women’s hockey team to its inaugural Olympic gold and led the national team to a remarkable nine world championship medals. In addition to her Hall of Fame career, she has been widely regarded for her work in inspiring and developing the next generation of women hockey players including many from the U.S. Olympic Women's Hockey team that won a gold medal in 2018. 

“We are proud to host the Cammi Granato Hockey School. Cammi is a wonderful role model for young players and this camp will have a lasting impact on everyone who participates,” said Aaron Wilbur, Director of Hockey at the North Shore Winter Club. “The North Shore Winter Club is committed to supporting the growth of female hockey—both at our club and across the province. We are thrilled to offer such an inspirational experience for these young athletes.”

Team USA Olympic gold medallist Hillary Knight, a former student of the Cammi Granato Hockey School, says “When I was young I had role models who were male, because we looked up to NHL players, and I had Cammi Granato.”

Adds Kelly Stack, a three-time winner of the Cammi Granato Award presented to the top player in NCAA’s Hockey East Conference, says of Granato “she’s arguably the best women’s hockey player to ever play the game.”

Granato will be joined at the North Shore camp by a group of top NCAA and U Sports coaches and trainers.
