Beat the heat at Clearwater Hockey School

Your child can enjoy six days of fun, friends and fitness. The instructors will ensure that the kids have a good time

Clearwater Hockey School is coming back to the Sportsplex and this year will feature a beginners’ program for only $50.

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 will be learning to skate and the fundamentals of hockey. For the older kids organizers will concentrate on what makes hockey fun, offense and scoring goals without ignoring the fundamentals.

The school will start Aug. 30 and continue to Sept. 3. Players must be registered by July 31 for arena staff to commit to making ice, although payment can be made the first day of the school.

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 a full day is $150. The family discount offers10 per cent off. If registration allows, there will be a girls-only session. There is also a be goaltenders’ 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 organizer.

For parents who are considering registering their child in Minor Hockey for the first time the hockey school 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 hockey school are a variety of off ice sports and recreation activities based on their age group.

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