Arizona Hockey Coach Berman to Host Camp in Gaylord

GAYLORD — The University of Arizona hockey coach Chad Berman will host a college prep and development camp at the Otsego County Sportsplex on July 9 and 10.

Berman, a Grand Rapids native, has made trips to Gaylord to visit friends in the past and this will be his first time hosting a camp in the area. The camp will feature on-ice skill development and advice on approaching college coaches. It will wrap up on Sunday with a scrimmage and individual feedback.

“Immediately, I was drawn to the idea of seeing another town like ours that didn’t have a camp but came to them, and I wanted to make it happen,” Berman said. “We’re certainly excited about the turnout. I didn’t know what to expect, you know, coming from out of town and and trying to dip into a newer market and taking the risk of going in an area where hockey camps not prominent. And so I was pretty excited by that number.”

More details on the camp including how to sign up can be found on the Arizona Wildcat Hockey website.
