Valley Youth Hockey Association is partnering with the Roanoke Rail Yard Dawgs to offer the inaugural VYHA/RYD Summer Hockey School. The Summer Hockey School will offer local players the chance to skate and learn with Roanoke Rail Yard Dawgs owners and current NHL players at Liberty University's LaHaye Ice Center this summer. From August 8 through August 11, enjoy the opportunity to participate in practice sessions and games coached by Jamie, Tye and Brock McGinn. On-ice instruction, off-ice interaction, and coaching by professional players will help prepare hockey school participants for the upcoming youth hockey season.
Learn the basic principles of ice hockey, "the coolest sport on earth":
Safety, rules, positions, skating, stick-handling, shooting, game play, and development of essential skating skills. Some previous skating experience is a plus, but is not required to participate in this program. Children receive basic skating instruction, but will learn primarily through drills and small area games.
