Watch this video first so you learn how we do, Elite Hockey.

” The group at Elite has been spectacular. We have seen great improvement from their group training, individual training and video reviews.

We look forward to each session with Elite and hope to continue with them for many years to come. “

Parent and Team Coach


Elite Hockey was born in summer 2006 by Tyler Elbrecht.  Tyler started Elite with the intention of helping young hockey players become better athletes and people.  The primary focus of Elite is to sharpen the skills of hockey players that want to take their game to the next level.

Individualized Focus

That “next level” is different for everyone! We strive to look at each individuals needs and attack what each one needs to make that jump.

Southern Illinois is Home (but we’re growing)

Growing up in the southern Illinois region, Tyler Elbrecht has been one of few from “this side of the river” to make it out of the area. You can read more about him in his bio.

Long-Term Relationships

Elite now has relationships with players as long as 15 years and has the honor to work with everyone from first-timers to NHL-caliber players.

We’re a Hit!

Elite Hockey Camps can proudly say that its camps have sold out 15 years straight.

Committed To Knowledge, Growth, and Teaching 

We make sure to never be complacent in our training methods and want to make sure we continue to develop our knowledge to pass on to the athlete.

Crush Your Goals

At Elite Hockey Camps, we strive to provide hockey camps, individual hockey lessons, group hockey lessons, and off-ice training that will help hockey players reach their goals and take them to the next level.

We look forward to working with you!


All locations are open to 14U and younger players, with everyone being divided properly between age/skill to make sure each player develops while attending the camp.
