No Red Lights: Hockey: Princeton University Girls Summer Camp - Goalie News And Instruction By Roxanne Gaudiel

Princeton University Girls Summer Camp

Camp Overview:Camp Snap Shot
Every summer, Princeton University hosts a girls' summer camp program. This program features some of the top Women's College hockey coaches in the Nation. Many of the coaches are head coaches from Div. 1 hockey programs. The Counselors are mainly current Princeton University hockey players with a few 0ther college hockey players as well.

Although this is not a dedicated goalie camp, having had personal experience as a Counselor and Coach at this camp, I highly recommend it as the goalies have a dedicated goalie coach and receive a lot of ice time.

The camp features three separate ice times: 1) Skills and Skating, 2) a team practice and 3) a game.
Name: Princeton University Girls' Summer Camp
July 16-31st

Coaches Bio:
Jeff Kampersal; Camp Director, Princeton University Head Coach

The coaching staff at the Princeton Camp is led by the expertise of Jeff Kampersal, who runs the skills and skating portion of the camp. Unlike most camp directors who take a back seat to the coaching aspects, Jeff is on the ice with every camper, providing his expertise and knowledge. Below is his bio as written on the Princeton Women's Website:

Jeff Kampersal’s successful run as the head coach of the Princeton women’s hockey team continued in 2006-07 as the Tigers recorded another top-four ECACHL finish and hosted a playoff series for the second straight season. The Tigers finished the season 16-12-3, tying the fifth highest win total in program history. Kampersal has been the coach for the eight of the 10 best seasons at Princeton in terms of wins. In 11 seasons, he has a 172-133-28 record behind the Princeton bench.

In his 11 years as Princeton’s head coach, Kampersal’s teams have averaged better than 16 wins per season, more than four wins more per season than in the first 17 years of the women’s hockey program. He led the 2005-06 Tigers to a program-high 21 wins, an Ivy League championship, a second-place finish in the ECACHL and Princeton’s first NCAA tournament berth. The 2005-06 season was the best in Princeton history. In addition to setting a program record for wins in a season, Princeton was home to both the Ivy League Player and Rookie of the Year, Kim Pearce and Annie Greenwood. Princeton had two first-team All-ECACHL selections and placed two players on the ECACHL All-Rookie team. Kampersal was named the ECACHL Coach of the Year as well for the second time in his career.

In 2002-03 and 2003-04, Kampersal led the Tigers to back-to-back 20-win seasons. 2002-03 was then the most successful season in program history, as the Tigers finished 20-9-2 and reached the ECAC semifinals. 2003-04’s 20-11-0 record was just slightly off the pace of the previous season.
Kampersal spent the summers of 2004, 2005 and 2006 serving on the coaching staff of the U.S. Women’s Select Festival.

In 2001-02, Kampersal was named the ECAC North Coach of the Year after leading his team to a 15-11-3 record, then his best mark in his six seasons behind the bench.
