“I was raised in Muskoka and always look forward to coming back to visit family and friends. My years of experience playing in the NHL, a pro career in Russia, and now coaching and managing under the hockey USA program in Grand Rapids, Michigan, I feel I will be bringing a fresh new direction on hockey instruction at the Muskoka Summer Hockey School. I look forward to seeing you in August, 2017!”
Mike’s Hockey Career Highlights
There will be a fundamental philosophy at Muskoka Summer Hockey School of improving the basic skills of each hockey player through direct instruction. Our main focus is to foster a love of the game of hockey. Let’s have some FUN!
Fantastic experience all around. Lots of instructors, and my son had a great time.
You and your staff/coaches are amazing! I don’t know how you do it but I see more progress in my son 1 week than I see in months of league practice! It’s been 2 years of fun, laughs, hard work and friendship with you all! We wouldn’t want to spend our time anywhere else!! See you next year!!
Every year, this camp is the highlight of the summer for Campbell. Amongst all the skills they develop the one thing my son takes away most from this camp is confidence. I’m so grateful for the positive and supportive environment of this great program!
All the kids said they want to go back next year.
This was a very well run, skilled camp….staff on ice and off were amazing and friendly. We drove up from the White Mountains in New Hampshire, USA to attend and we will definitely be back! Well worth the trip!
My son and daughter loved getting up to go to hockey camp! They had a blast and can’t wait until next year!
My son had fun and he learned a lot as well. He liked the hockey game each day, playing different positions and gaining confidence with his skating, well done!
Great hockey camp – the perfect combination of skills and fun
Our son’s first experience this summer exceeded our expectations. We can’t wait to return.
My boys were excited each morning to learn new skills from the diligent coaches! The goalies progressed immensely from day to day!
My daughter loved it! As a parent I was so thankful that she was not treated any differently as a girl. The ratio of instructors/helpers to kids was impressive.
The Mike Fountain hockey school was a terrific learning and growing experience for our son Noah who is a beginner. The school is very organized which helps keep the kids focused and having fun, the instructors from Mike Fountain down all love to teach which is very evident. If you are looking for a hockey school for your son or daughter wether a first timer or a player who has played organized hockey, this school will not disappoint. The kids meet new friends and definitely leave with skills they did not have when they arrived both on ice and off. Thank you Mike and Team.
Everyone was nice and we all had fun
My son Travis is a diabetic so i was at the rink for many hours watching the camp in action . I was totally impressed with the enthusiasm of all the coaches on the ice , the kids all had a great time and i could see their skill progression as the camp ended , we’ll be back for sure !!!
Kieron, Conor and Shannon appreciated the positive environment and especially the fastest tempo. They enjoyed being challenged and kept moving.
As a parent I really liked how well organized you were. When I ask my kids they said they had a lot of fun. We’ll be back for sure.
The drills were great and the kids loved the daily games. It was also fun having kids from so many different centres and even from outside of Ontario. They are looking forward to seeing the friends they made again next year.
The timing allowed for a perfect combination of ice time and cottage time.
At six years old, this was Cole’s first hockey camp. All of my questions leading up to the week were promptly answered by Derek. Everything seemed very well organized but the biggest compliment I can give is how excited Cole was for day two. We can’t wait for next year!
Very well run and very well organized.
Our son got up each morning and couldn’t wait to get to your hockey school. He had visitors up at the cottage and didn’t once complain about leaving to go and learn and play with new friends at your camp. Thanks for all of your hard work!
Our son says “thank you”. He loved the off ice training games. Everything was well organized We really enjoyed the end of week celebration.
Maddox loved going there, wanted to do the second week
Our son had an amazing 2 weeks in Junior Pro. Highlight of his summer.
My step daughter had an amazing week. She had a smile everyday when I picked her up!
We hope you all enjoyed a safe and healthy summer. We missed running the hockey school this year, but we are in full swing preparing for 2021!
We have set tentative dates (dates must still be approved by the Town of Gravenhurst) for 2021
Week #1 – August 2nd to 6th
Week #2 – August 9th to 13th
Please note, the format of our hockey school may be modified based on the most current health guidelines, developed by the Simcoe-Muskoka health unit and the Town of Gravenhurst. This may include, but not limited to – smaller number of participants in each division, keeping divisions as a cohort, physical distancing while off ice, regular hand washing routine, use of PPE.
As a result of these uncertainties, we have decided not to open registration until January, 2021. Hopefully by this time, we will have a better understanding of the protocols. We appreciate your patience as we work closely with our community partners in the coming months.
If you left your payment with us from this summer, you WILL have a spot in our 2021 camp.
Mike and Derek
