The Ryan O'Byrne Youth Sports Society is pleased to announce the 2nd Annual Ryan O'Byrne Charity Camp(ROCC); Atom and Pee-wee hockey camp in Victoria, BC to be held the first week of August 2013. All profits from the camp will be given to KidSport Victoria on behalf of the Ryan O'Byrne Youth Sports Society. Max Young will once again be the lead instructor at ROCC 2013. NHL Guest Instructors will be announced throughout the spring and summer.
The 2012 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, 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 funded KidSport Victoria with over $25,000. Those funds raised by ROCC will get over 100 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 gave 28 deserving kids in Greater Victoria brand new sets of hockey gear and their registration fees for the upcoming season.
We are thrilled to be able to give back to the community and look forward to another successful year in 2013!
