Shrewsbury Youth Hockey is excited to announce.....
BRUINS ACADEMY LEARN-TO-PLAY
SYHA is excited to once again be a partner with the Boston Bruins and offer the 2018 Bruins Academy learn to play hockey program. Children ages 5-9 have this unique opportunity to try ice hockey before making the commitment.
Location: Buffone Skating Rink, Lake Avenue, Worcester
Dates: Fridays - October 5, 12, 19 & 26 @ 6:00pm
Get ready in September to take the ICE in October....... helpful hints below!!!
Ready to TAKE THE ICE?? The coaches and all of our on and off ice helpers are ready and looking forward to our first day! I wanted to share a couple of important reminders.
Be sure to have your player's new skates sharpened. They will not come sharp and will be incredibly frustrating for your player as they try to stand up. Skate sharpening can be done at Pure Hockey, Marlborough, Kleen n' Hard, Worcester.
Label EACH piece of equipment with your player's name, including stick. Use hockey tape on the front of your child's helmet and write their name with a sharpie in LARGE letters so the coaches can learn their name.
Be sure to arrive at the rink at least 30 minutes before ice time.
It takes a bit of juggling of equipment from the parking lot, checking in and get settled in the locker room. Also, it does take awhile to get all of the equipment on. (Practice at HOME and adjust buckles etc!)
Use the restroom BEFORE dressing. We will have volunteers in the locker rooms to assist with an equipment related questions.
4. All players MUST use one of the designated locker rooms. Please - NO DRESSING in the lobby or on the bleachers.
Take lots of picture and videos!!! You will not believe the difference in just 4 weeks!
See you at the rink,
