"Amazing technical instruction. The limited number of skaters and high instructor to student ratio is excellent. Absolutely fantastic in all areas.  This is the best camp I have ever seen.  Great camp. I have run camps, coached AAA and been involved in numerous hockey initiatives. This is the perfect hockey camp for improving overall skill levels. Most importantly, my kids really enjoyed the experience while improving their skills. As a parent I couldn't ask for anything more. We will be back next year!"

Welcome to Defence First

We, at Defence First, are excited to introduce the only Professional Defence Hockey School of its kind. Our cutting edge approach incorporates the fundamentals of hockey but what makes our school uniquely effective is the time we spend devoted to the mental skills, how to “think the game.” This attention to detail gives our players an added advantage, that “extra element” that coaches and scouts are always looking for. 

“Defence Wins Championships.” At Defence First, we give defensive players an opportunity to reach their maximum potential and achieve individual success. We provide players with on-ice instruction, discussions focused on nutrition, off-ice conditioning, goal setting, work ethic and good character.

"We were looking for a defensive camp and we found The Defence Camp"

Chris Collins


We are very excited for the chance to work with developing defensive players. We appreciate the opportunity to give back the knowledge that the great game of hockey has so fortunately given to us throughout our careers.

Defence First wants to take you to the next level!

We look forward to seeing you at camp,

Mike Weaver & Team
