Due to the closing of BU through the summer we are making contingency plans for all BU Development Camps.
We have tentative locations identified in MA and are patiently awaiting further guidelines from President Trump and Governor Baker.
We hope everyone is safe and healthy and enjoying being back to school(whether in person/online or hybrid) and hockey. We successfully opened up 50 camps across several states safely adhering to all federal/state/local and rink guidelines. Our 2021 camp schedule is live. We will be emailing campers with Pro Ambitions credits first to let them know the 2021 schedule is live so they have the first notice and opportunity to sign up for 2021 camps. We encourage parents to read USA Hockey’s Covid19 guideline page:
“USA Hockey will sanction hockey for the 2020-21 season and medical experts have confirmed that with taking appropriate precautions, it is indeed safe to play hockey today.”
Here is a great Q And A taken from USA Hockey Page that we at Pro Ambitions agree with whole heartedly:
“ Question (Anthony N.): Understanding that water droplets (even those that may suspend in air for a given time) are likely being expelled into the air through sweat, talking/yelling out drills, and heavier breathing during play, how can a sport like hockey be considered safe, especially with the high potential of direct contact, potentially spreading/sharing water droplets through gear and jerseys?
Answer: Hockey and other youth sports provide an important vehicle for the physical, social and mental well-being of our children and families. The choice to participate is a personal one. There are responsible ways to play sports and that playing sports provide positive health benefits for physical, social and mental well-being, but there is always some level of risk. The chance of viral transmission from hockey gear or jerseys is unknown. Risk can be reduced by frequent hand sanitation, avoid touching the face and disinfection of equipment and jerseys after each use. “
2021 AA BU BOARDING UPDATE AND SUGGESTION. PLEASE ONLY LEAVE A DEPOSIT.
Due to Covid19 we ask parents to only leave a deposit for AAA BU BOARDING 2021.
If boarding is not advisable by the state of MA or BU we will conduct AAA BU Day Camps as we did in 2020. Unfortunately last summer the entire campus was closed but it is currently open and all of our camp spaces for 2021 are reserved. We will continue to monitor the situation closely with our partners at BU.
10/2/2020 Update – 2021 AAA BU Update from Boston University regarding Covid19 2021
Boston University is continuing to hold Pro Ambitions facility space and housing requests for our summer 2021 program. Both Boston University and Pro Ambitions will be closely monitoring the developing situation of Covid 19. Our partnership has mutually been an absolute pleasure and we both look forward to training the youth of The Nation again as we have been for over a decade at Boston University and are planning for Summer 2021. If you sign up for AAA BU Boarding 2021 we highly recommend only paying the deposit at this time. We recommend this so the deposit may be transferred to the day camp option or another US based day camp at the same rate. Thanks!
6/8/2020 Update – COVID19 Questionnaire
All parents are mailed this questionnaire a couple weeks prior to camp as well as being asked to sign upon entering the rink the first day of camp with their child. – (Click Here to see questionnaire)
AAA BU Development Camp Announcement
Hi All AAA BU Development Campers. We have been preparing a plan for our AAA BU Development Camps since we found out BU will be closing for the summer due to COVID19. We have found a home at several rinks identified around MA. We are waiting on MA state guidelines from President Trump and Governor Baker. We have been making contingency plans daily for all camps preparing for small groups and social distancing. For example we have the guidelines for CO TX and GA and they are allowing 10-15 kids on the ice at a time. This will be a lot of ice for a small number of kids and very personalized instruction with our top flight of professional BU Development Coaches.
We will update the page again as soon as we get the MA guidelines. We have secured some later weeks in the summer as well for AAA BU Development Camps that will be small groups on location. We will allow families to switch to any available AAA BU weeks per availability. We are not able to provide boarding for summer 2020 but will be offering several small group training options at several rinks as soon as we get the guidelines.
This is now the second time in Pro Ambitions history that we have had to move AAA BU Development Camps on location as we called it. Many of you may remember when BU had to repair the rink and we were not notified until spring. Worked out well then as it will this summer with the small group individual training.
Monitoring all situations closely and will continue to update this AAA BU page and be in touch when news is definitive very shortly and how everything will run. Check back daily as we expect to have an announcement from Governor Baker on May 4.
All camps are a go, look forward to getting back to hockey!
