Free hockey clinic set for Triport associations

Progressive Goaltending of Victoria will run player and goalie clinics at arenas in Port Hardy, Port McNeill

Their on-ice rivalry yet to resume for the 2011-12 season, North Vancouver Island’s minor hockey associations will team this month with Progressive Goaltending of Victoria for a player and goalie development clinic free to registered members of all associations.

The Triport Minor Hockey Association 2011 Fall Clinics feature staff from Progressive Goaltending, which earlier this year ran the Clayton Stoner Hockey School that brought local pro skaters Clayton Stoner and Benn Olsen back home to skate with the next generation of players.

It is open at no cost to players, from the peanut to midget levels, registered with the Port Alice, Port Hardy, Port McNeill and North Island Eagles hockey programs.

Sessions are scheduled for Sept. 24 and 25 at both Chilton Regional Arena in Port McNeill and at Don Cruickshank Memorial Arena in Port Hardy. Sessions, divided among age group and by players or goalies, will begin at 8 a.m. each day and continue through 3:30 p.m.

To sign up, players can check with their coaches or association executive members. For more info, call Graham Richards of Port Hardy Minor Hockey at 250-949-9588 or Scott Mitchell of Port McNeill Minor Hockey at 250-956-3182.
