Skate with the Tigers Preseason Hockey 2014

Skate with the Tigers!!

MAHA and Middlebury Union high school coaches Derek Bartlett and Matt Brush are once again teaming up to run a preseason hockey clinic.  Each session will follow the American Development Model (ADM) to ensure a fun and challenging environment. Areas of focus will be skating, shooting, passing and hockey IQ.  There will also be a new element added this year which will include some dry-land training events!

Sessions will begin Saturday October 13-17, 2014.  Each skater will get 4 on-ice sessions as well as some innovative new off-ice, dry-land training!

Cost per skater is only $90, and a portion of the proceeds will go directly to the high school teams’ hockey programs.  A great skate, for a great cause, coached by some great coaches!


And one more thing...

The Board is happy to inform you to put away the extra fleece and put that $10 back in your pocket.  The heat is on us this year, as MAHA is picking up the tab for space heaters at all home games!

Here's to a great season!

5 Things to Remember

This is an edited version of some great comments by a sports writer I enjoy, John Buccigross. Take it for what it is!

Why hockey?

If nothing else, it gets them away from electronics and teaches them a small slice of humanity that they can take forward through life, a life with more heart and less battery power. The rink's cold robs electronics of their battery power and signal reception, anyway.

So, if you are a first-time hockey parent, or dream of one day spending more than $10,000 and sacrificing weekends for a decade of glamorous youth or "minor" hockey, here are some important things you need to know about the youth hockey universe -- and hockey in general -- to help speed up the assimilation process of becoming a "rink rat"...which is a good thing!

Girls U14 AA are State Champions!

Congratulations to the Girls U14AA, who took home the State Championship on Sat in a close 1-0 win against Rutland U14.  An inspiring skate in our home rink!

Thank you to the many members of our hockey community who came out to support our girls.  A good week for girls hockey in Middlebury!!
