We sit down with our players and their families to create and schedule the optimal summer of training for each individual. We have a network of instructors in both the United States and Canada that we utilize to help the player achieve his goals in preparation for the next playing season.
In the summer, Edge Sports Management runs a training and development camp to help our players prepare for the upcoming season. The camp includes elite level on and off ice instruction. We also bring in expert speakers such as NHL General Managers, scouts, player development coaches, nutritionists, accountants, and other professionals to help the players in topics pertinent to professional athletes.
