September is Hockey kick off month in Homer, Alaska and YWAM Arctic Mercy is right in the thick of things with our annual Homer Hockey Camp. Designed as a community outreach/ministry event, this camp features top level hockey instruction and quality character building principles. The camp is led by Glen Bueckert.
Glen Bueckert is the head coach and founder/director of YWAM Hockey. Glen played his minor hockey in Prince George, BC, then proceeded through Jr. A. in Pentiction with the Broncos and Major Junior with Victoria Cougars of the WHL. He coached BC junior league for many years in the Campbell River, BC Minor Hockey Association. He has over 30 years of hockey camp and coaching experience.
Glen brings assistant coaches and there will be other on-and-off-ice assistants from the Homer area. Contact us if your group would like to help host the 2017 event.
This Hockey Camp has been an incredible outreach opportunity and an amazing time getting to know, encourage and teach local kids. We’ve been able to run it several years in a row but the last two years haven’t been able to due to not enough staff being at the base when the camp runs. We would love to start this camp up again and we’ve had many people ask us when we will. It’s a quality camp and it fills a need in the community while giving us a way to meet and minister to the youth. If you are interested in coming to YWAM Arctic Mercy and helping us run the camp we would love to hear from you! No previous Hockey Skills are required, just a servant heart and an email to us!
