MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury Amateur Hockey Association is offering some mentoring that will enable youth hockey players to get a jump on the 2015-2016 youth hockey season and skate with the Middlebury Union High School Tigers.
MUHS hockey coaches Derek Bartlett and Matt Brush, along with high school hockey players, will run a youth clinic from Monday, Oct. 12, through Friday, Oct. 16, at the Memorial Sports Center.
The clinic will focus on skill development as well as specific hockey concepts involving offensive and defensive play.
The fee for the clinic is $90, which covers ice costs and includes a donation to the MUHS boys’ and girls’ hockey programs.
