In anticipation of the rinks in our area being able to open very soon - the summer on-ice opportunities in our area are getting scheduled!

Below are the camps and clinics provided by KOHA as well as some of our partners.

FROM KOHA:
KOHA's Summer (August) Development Clinics offer some weekend options (August 1&2) and some weekday options (August 3-6). From POWER Skating, to skill acquisition, body contact & confidence/gapping & angling, and goaltending.
From 8U up through 16U & High School players - there is something for everyone!
 

FROM OUR PARTNERS:
-- Athletic Mentors is offering a summer camp running from July 6th-August 21st (rates will be prorated & refunded if start date is delayed due to COVID regulations).
--Ferschweiler Hockey School is offering two Monday-Friday camps (July 20-24 & 27-31) which will be half day camps with two ice sessions per day (younger ages in the mornings and older players in the afternoons).


NOTE ABOUT RINKS OPENING: Once our Governor announces the date when rinks in our region of the state will be allowed to open, Wings West will begin to put the ice back in - which will take 1-2 weeks depending on several variables (temperature, humidity, etc.). We have had folks asking - while gyms are allowed to open, this does not yet include ice rinks per the Governor's order.
Tryout dates will be announced once rinks are open and as outlined in MAHA's Return to the Game plan.
