WEST POINT – The Army Hockey team will host a free youth clinic on Saturday, Sept. 26, for children ages 8 to 14.

Members of the Army Hockey team, as well as coaches and staff, will conduct the clinic at West Point’s Tate Rink beginning at 7:30 a.m.

Children who register will be separated into mite, squirt, peewee or bantam groups to ensure a quality learning experience.

All registrants are required to bring their own equipment, including skates, helmet, shoulder pads, shin pads, elbow pads, gloves, hockey pants, athletic supporter and cup, mouth piece and stick.

The instruction will be handled by members of the Army Hockey team and its coaches and will focus on skating, shooting, passing and stick handling.

Sessions will run for 60 minutes, beginning with the youngest age group at 7:30 a.m. and the ice will be re-surfaced between groups.

Registration is limited and must be completed by September 15. It can be done by calling 2nd Lt. Zach McKelvie at 845-938-8012

The hockey clinic is one of seven being offered by the Army Athletic Association this fall joining men’s and women’s soccer, baseball, softball, women’s basketball and volleyball.
