USA Hockey's National Team Development Program announced today that Naurato Hockey, a group dedicated to developing elite, high-end hockey players across the country, will run a trio of NTDP summer hockey camps this August at USA Hockey Arena.
"It is great to welcome Brandon and Naurato Hockey to USA Hockey Arena this summer," said Mike Henry, general manager of USA Hockey Arena. "Naurato Hockey has proven success working with the best players and we are excited for them to continue developing skaters in our area."
Naurato Hockey will run three summer camps at USA Hockey Arena from August 2-20, focusing on player development on the ice. Camps will be held for 18U, 14U and 12U age groups. Each section will hold three on-ice sessions per week for nine total skates. For more information on the camps and registration details, click here.
"It is an honor to partner with USA Hockey Arena and the NTDP in an effort to create the best development environment in the country," said Brandon Naurato, founder of Naurato Hockey. "It is exciting to be surrounded with such high performing people that bring a passion for development from the grassroots all the way to the NHL. These kids will be introduced to the same resources that the top players in the world have implemented into their daily routines. It is a very rewarding feeling to be a part of the process of educating and mentoring the next great American-born players."
Naurato has worked with and helped develop 67 NHL players, including American-born first-round selections Dylan Larkin, Zach Werenski, Jack Hughes, Cole Caufield, Josh Norris and Kyle Connor.
