The Ryan O'Byrne Youth Sports Society is pleased to announce the 3rd Annual Ryan O'Byrne Charity Camp(ROCC); an Atom and Pee-wee hockey camp in Victoria, BC to be held from June 30th - July 4th, 2014. All profits from the camp will be given to KidSport Victoria on behalf of the Ryan O'Byrne Youth Sports Society. Max Young and Craig Didmon, Head coach of the Victoria Grizzlies, will be returning as lead instructors for ROCC 2014. NHL Guest Instructors will be announced throughout the winter and spring.
The 2013 ROCC was a huge success and we would like to thank everyone who supported us through sponsorship, volunteering and attending the camp. Over 60 kids took part in ROCC at the University of Victoria last August. NHL Guest Instructors included Jamie Benn, Manny Malhotra, Jordie Benn, Paul Bissonnette, Boyd Gordon, Matt Irwin, and Tyson Barrie. Camp participants enjoyed a challenging week-long camp focusing on skill and team development with both on-ice and off-ice components. Check out the above video for some footage of the camp!
With the proceeds from ROCC, the Ryan O'Byrne Youth Sports Society has funded KidSport Victoria with $65,000 over the last two years. Those funds raised by ROCC will get over 200 kids into sport in Greater Victoria. Also, the Ryan O’Byrne Youth Sports Society, in partnership with the NHLPA, KidSport Victoria and Kirby’s Source for Sports has given over 50 deserving kids in Greater Victoria brand new sets of hockey gear and their registration fees for the upcoming season over the last two years.
We are thrilled to be able to give back to the community and look forward to another successful year in 2014!
