MSH is offering Summer Hockey Clinics for Special Hockey registered players. These are skill based, skating, passing, and shooting drills. Each session might end with some sort of a game, but more than likely will not be a typical scrimmage. 

MSH has been working hard to find sponsors for these clinics to make them even more special.  The registration deadline has passed for players to receive a jersey in time for the Lakeville clinic, but players who register by August 20th will receive a jersey in time for the St. Cloud clinic and players who register by September 3rd will receive a jersey for the St. Louis Park clinic.  (Players can still register to attend the Lakeville clinic even though the jersey deadline has passed).  The cost of the jersey is $40 (collected at registration time).  The jersey will be really cool and well worth the $40 along with a lot of quality ice time!  The jerseys are handed out at the clinic.  

If you are interested or know anyone interested in sponsoring these clinics please contact Scott Foley (952-738-2600).

Lakeville Clinic at Ames Arena (Rink 2) - Sundays, July 30th - August 27th at 3:00.

St. Cloud Clinic at MAC Ice Arena - September 10th at 2:00 - 3:15pm and September 17th at 10:45am - 12:00pm.  

St. Louis Park Clinic at SLP Rec Center (West Rink) - Sundays, October 1st - 29th at 10:30 or 11:30 depending on Skill Level.  October 8th ice time is at 10:00 or 11:00 (East Rink).

With every registration of this type you will receive a confirmation email once your registration is complete.  If you do not receive a confirmation email you did not complete the registration correctly.
