Clearwater Hockey School is coming back to the Sportsplex from Aug. 26 to 31.

This year we will feature a beginners program for new players at only $50.

For parents who are considering registering their child in Minor Hockey for the first time, it gives beginning players a good start on the season. For new children in the community, it gives them a chance to make friends before school starts. Included in the school are a variety of off-ice sports and recreation activities based on their age group.

Your child can enjoy six days of fun, friends and fitness. The instructors will ensure that the kids have a good time; Hockey schools are supposed to be fun. For the younger players, it is learning to skate and the fundamentals of hockey. For the older kids, we try to concentrate on what makes hockey fun, offense and scoring goals without ignoring the fundamentals. Our head instructor this year will be Ken McKay.

In hockey, your child learns more than on ice skills.

Hockey teaches children responsibility, commitment, sportsmanship, integrity, respect and leadership, skills that will help them in all areas of their life. It is an excellent form of exercise and helps to form bonds of friendship that will last a lifetime.

Sports create a healthy environment for children.

The school is open to both boys and girls. Price for the full day program is $150.

Families receive a 10 per cent discount when registering a second child. There is also a goaltender’s session.

“We try to keep our prices as low as possible. This is our community hockey school at our community arena.

If you compare the price of the hockey school against the cost of paying day care, I think you will find that hockey school is very reasonable,” said one of the organizers.

Full sets of equipment are available for new players at no charge.
