Ice Hockey Performance Clinic


In response to the COVID-19 situation, Buckeye Sports Camps has cancelled all camps and clinics through July 6th, 2020, per the University’s policies in place.  Ohio State continues to follow recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)  and World Health Organization (WHO) about events and gatherings. The university will continue to evaluate events and will share plans to either end the restrictions early or, if needed, extend them. The main priority of our programs continues to be the health, safety and wellness of our participants, student-athletes, coaches, administrators and staff as we continue to monitor all developing and relevant information on the COVID-19 virus.  At this point we remain committed to preparing for our summer programs and will actively monitor the situation. In the event of canceling summer programs a full refund will be issued.
