2. Da Beauty League – Registration closes on Wednesday August 17th

Once again MN Special Hockey has been invited to skate between two Da Beauty League playoff games on Monday August 22nd!!! 

Players must be in the Braemar Arena locker room area before 5:30, skating will be around 7:00 (after the 6:00 game) for a short few minutes.

This registration is for entering your name in the drawing to skate with Da Beauty League.  Filling out this registration does NOT guarantee a spot to skate, just to get in the drawing. 

  • There will be 12 players allowed.

  • If we have more than 12 registered players we will have a drawing.

  • Skaters that played in a previous Da Beauty event may not be eligible.

More information about Da Beauty League can be found here:

Cost to get into the games is $15 (young kids are free).  Whether or not you skate... come and join the fun and support Da Beauty League charities.

Registration for the drawing closes at midnight on Wednesday, August 17th.  If your name is drawn to skate, you must reply to an email on Friday the 19th confirming that you will be there on Monday the 22nd.  If you do not reply in time, you will lose your spot to another player.

Do you have a personal connection with any of the Da Beauty players?  Please contact Jane Cashin with that information! or 612-581-4483.

3.  MSH Fall Training Camp – Includes Special Training for Goalies

Minnesota Special Hockey is offering a pre-season Hockey Camp for registered players. This camp is a skating and skill based program preparing players for the upcoming season. Each session might end with some sort of a game, but more than likely will not be a typical scrimmage. 

Goalies will be part of this camp and will have specific goalie related training and coaching.

We may or may NOT have enough volunteers to provide one on one support. If you require this support please work with your team to line up a volunteer. 

You must be fully registered with MN Special Hockey for the upcoming 2022-2023 season in order to attend this camp.  There will be no exceptions!
