Camp Reviews

Over the past 11 years, Crazy Eights Hockey is extremely proud to have had the opportunity to train hockey players of all ages and ability levels. It has been an honor to watch campers move on to achieve their goal of playing college hockey and come back to work camp. I am happy to share with you a few of the many kind words and positive experiences players, parents and coaches have had with Crazy Eights Hockey.

Thank you for your feedback!

2015 will be my daughter’s seventh year attending Crazy 8’s! The camps have always been the highlight of her off season. She has met many girls from around the state that she still talks with today. The on-ice instruction is great and the off-ice sessions are very challenging. What other camp can girls learn from Olympians or have had the opportunity to hold an Olympic medal? Jinelle and her staff are awesome instructors and even better role models!

I have been fortunate to be involved with Crazy Eights hockey both as a player and a counselor. As a player, Jinelle taught me the value of hard work and the skills to go along with it. She pushed me harder than I thought I was able to go which brought me to the next level. Not only does Jinelle encourage hard work, but her camp provides an environment where every girl, no matter what their skill level, can improve as a hockey player. As a counselor, I am able to see friendships develop along with hockey skills. Although Crazy Eights is a hockey camp, the girls are able to grow as people and learn how to be respectful, healthy young women.

Crazy 8’s Hockey Camp

Crazy 8’s was one of the most rewarding hockey experiences of my daughter’s young hockey life! Living in Pennsylvania, it is hard to find all girls hockey camp/program that will not only provide top notch instruction, but also outstanding mentoring and motivation. The staff was supportive and encouraging, but also motivated my daughter to push herself to new heights. It is wonderful to have a program that supports girls’ dreams, but also helps them build the skills necessary to reach them. Once you experience Crazy 8’s, it will become a summer tradition!

Crazy 8’s Hockey Camp

My daughter has been playing Hockey now for 4 years at the age of 12 and this Summer will be her 4th year in a row attending Coach Jinelle’s Hockey camp…Crazy 8’s. When pulling our summer together, Crazy 8’s camp is a high priority we plan for her to attend. Its fun and challenging. Coach Jinelle has a rare ability to train and develop Hockey & people skills at the same time at every level so we look forward to having our daughter attend her camps and training whenever we can. Balancing individual needs to develop Hockey skills while having fun and being challenged within a group is what you can expect at Crazy 8’s camp. Playing at the highest level of Women’s Hockey, as US Olympian, a National Champion at the University of Wisconsin and a coach at the Division 1 level, Coach Jinelle has numerous relationships with high level Hockey players in attendance to help coach & train for the week. Having our daughter surrounded with great role models is a great part of the experience at Crazy 8’s camp. When you pick up your daughter at the end of the week, if doing the overnight option, or each day as a day camper…you can expect your daughter to have grown as a hockey player and person..but most important to have a smile on her face!

Crazy Eights Camp

Over the past several years I have not only participated in Crazy Eights Hockey Camp, but I have also worked as a coach. Participating in camp provided me with ample instruction and skating, as well as conditioning, material to bring my game to the next level and to excel as the best player I could be. I only had the chance to participate in camp for one year before I exceeded the age limit, but this provided me the opportunity to work the camp. Working the camp has allowed me to gain more knowledge as a player, where I learned new drills and took that with me to my college team, but it also allowed me to gain coaching knowledge. Having the opportunity to work Crazy Eights Hockey Camp has shown me what it means to be a great coach and how to be a that coach. Everything that I have learned from this camp, both as a player and as a coach, are lessons I will take with me as long as I am participating in hockey.

I highly recommend this camp to any girl who is looking to interact and learn from great coaches to make significant gains over the summer. Everything that the girls learn will stick with them forever and they will have fun doing it!

by Bridget Sheahan on Crazy Eights Hockey Camp

This is my daughters FAVORITE camp! When we start talking about summer plans, the first she says is, “I want to do Crazy 8’s more than anything”. The coaching staff is not only top notch, but very inspirational and she loves making friends with the other campers that share her passion for hockey.
