Over 100 skaters pass the puck during IIHF ice hockey training camp last week in Chiang Mai

Over 100 youthful skaters from six countries perhaps took another stride in their quest to become ice hockey stars last week when the International Ice Hockey Federation held a weeklong training camp at the Kad Suan Kaew Shopping Complex in Chiang Mai. Meetings were also held at Chiang Mai Orchid Hotel.

Black’s defense is well set to hold off White’s furious attack inside the blue line.

The IIHF training camp atmosphere was vigorous, in part due to the participation of many nationalities, including Chinese Taipei, India, Mongolia, Hong Kong, Singapore and Thailand. The training camp was open for young sportsmen aged 14-16 years old.

The action is fast paced as youthful skaters learn the finer points of ice hockey.

The hockey began on August 9 and finished on August 13, and was the first part of a 5-year Ice Hockey Association of Thailand (IHAT) project, which came out of a recent Asian Development Program Workshop.

This year being the project’s first, the training camp centered on improving skating skills and teaching proper regulations of the game. In the future, training camps will alternate with ice hockey competitions.

“Black” skated to a 4-4 draw with “White” during the IIHF ice hockey training camp last week in Chiang Mai.

During the training camp, some competitions were also held to keep things lively. Teams were divided into “Black” and “White”, made up mostly of 15-year-olds representing their home countries.

It must be difficult for the goalies when the competition heats up, causing fog to appear.
