Blue Jackets Hockey School kicked off today at Chiller North, opening with a "mini mites" session this morning.

The two programs this week are run similarly for both mini mites (ages 5 and 6) and mites (ages 7 and 8), with the session times being the main exception. Mini mite camp runs from 8:30 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. and mite camp runs from 12:30 p.m. to 5:15 p.m.

Rob Schriner, assistant general manager of the Chiller Ice Rinks and head of the Blue Jackets' annual hockey school, said that the turnout was great for the first day and he expects the week to run smoothly.

"This is our 13th year hosting the Blue Jackets Hockey School," said Schriner. "This week is always a fun week. We have about 30 mini mites and about 60 participants in the mites age group."

Schriner also said that the mites and mini mites have a long but fun week ahead of them. He and the other senior counselors plan to give the kids an intense and well-rounded experience this week, both on and off the ice.

"We'll do a specialized hockey training program where they’ll get the chance to get on the skating treadmill, the rapid shot, do some hand-eye foot coordination drills and some dryland training," said Schriner. "They’ve got a busy week ahead of them.”

In addition to the on- and off-ice workout sessions, Blue Jackets prospects Ryan Murray and Thomas Larkin are expected to help out this week. Blue Jackets mascot Stinger will also make an appearance.
