Separate sessions will accommodate boys and girls; sessions start in July
Elev802, an Essex, Vermont-based custom ice skills training center owned by two former University of Vermont men’s hockey stars, will partner with Norwich University to bring a summer hockey camp back to campus and Kreitzberg Arena in summer 2022.
Former Catamounts stars Torrey Mitchell and Peter Lenes own Elev802, the company behind the four-week overnight Elev802 Bauer Hockey Camp. Former University of Vermont men’s hockey head coach Kevin Sneddon serves as Elev802’s president and operations director.
Elev802 was founded in 2019 to bring a one-stop-shop hockey training facility to small cities. Elev802 expanded to open its first franchise in Boston this year.
The summer hockey camp’s sessions start July 10 and run through early August.
The first two camp weeks, July 10 to July 16 and July 17 to July 23 will be for boys ages 11 to 17. The last two weeks, July 23 to July 30 and July 31 to Aug. 6 will be for girls ages 11 to 17. Each day of the weeklong camps will feature three on-ice sessions and off-ice activities to deliver a complete summer camp experience.
Mitchell, a two-time Hockey East Honorable Mention All-Star pick, tallied 105 points in 115 games with the Catamounts. He played more than 700 games in 11 years in the National Hockey League, playing with the San Jose Sharks, Buffalo Sabres, Montreal Canadiens, Minnesota Wild and Los Angeles Kings.
Lenes scored 46 goals and 46 assists for 92 points in 148 games for the Catmaounts. He helped guide the University of Vermont to the 2009 NCAA Division I Frozen Four and as a senior was a finalist for the Hobey Baker Award, given to collegiate hockey’s top men’s player. Lenes played 10 professional seasons in the American Hockey League, ECHL and leagues in Denmark and Austria.
Sneddon was UVM’s head men’s hockey coach for 17 years. He amassed 251 victories and led the Catamounts to three NCAA Tournament appearances.
“Elev802 is absolutely thrilled to partner with Norwich University to establish The Elev802 Bauer Camp,” Sneddon said. “With elite skills coaches, staff, and counselors, our camp will be professional, fun, and most importantly, safe. The Norwich campus provides hockey players with fantastic facilities and staff that truly care about the success of our camp. This will be one of the most elite hockey camps in the country.”
Norwich University has hosted summer ice hockey camps nearly every year since Kreitzberg Arena opened in fall 1998. Kreitzberg Arena is one of the premier college hockey facilities in the country and has hosted four NCAA Division III Ice Hockey Championships in 1999, 2003, 2004 and 2018.
