Crosby coaches kids at camp while Pens take pictures at house

BY foxsports • August 3, 2015

Sidney Crosby isn't shy about taking to the ice during the heat of August, and to benefit kids, no less.

The Pittsburgh Penguins captain served as host to his first annual camp called "The Sidney Crosby Hockey School," which took place in his hometown of Cole Harbour, Nova Scotia. Colorado Avalanche star and Cole Harbour native Nathan MacKinnon also attended the camp, which began Monday and concludes on Friday.

Approximately 160 boys and girls ages 8-12 from reportedly around the world attended the two-time Hart Trophy winner's camp, which featured drills including on- and off-ice skills development.

While Crosby was busy on the ice, the Penguins were granted access to his home and came away with a bevy of pictures that span the phenom's life through various stages of hockey. 

Needless to say, Crosby has succeeded at every level, from his pee-wee days to claiming gold on two occasions for Canada in the Winter Olympics as well as winning the Stanley Cup with the Penguins in 2009.
