East Lansing, Mich. - - Michigan State head coach Tom Anastos and his wife, Lisa, will host the second annual Spartan Hockey Women's Clinic on Wednesday, July 17 from 6-10 p.m. at Munn Ice Arena.
The clinic is designed for the female hockey FAN - not just the seasoned player. Participants will gain insight on offensive, defensive, and special-team strategies, as well as have a chance to "lace `em up" for some on-ice instruction with current hockey players and the MSU staff.
"We were overwhelmed by the positive feedback we received from last year's clinic," said head coach Tom Anastos. "We started this clinic because we had a number of requests from female fans who wanted to learn more about the game, Spartan Hockey and see our facilities," said Anastos. " Last year was a lot of fun for our staff and players, and I think that our participants really enjoyed it as well. This clinic will be a lot of fun for everyone, will provide each participant with a new perspective on the game, and allow our fans to meet many of the people involved in the program."
The fee for the clinic is $100, which includes all off-ice and on-ice instruction, a Spartan hockey jersey and T-shirt, a hockey stick and official game puck, individual and group photos, and a Q&A session with hors d'oeuvres & beverages. Hockey equipment (including skates) will be provided for those who need it, but participants may bring their own equipment if they choose.
Space is limited! Fans are encouraged to register as soon as possible, as last year's clinic sold out quickly. Participants must be 18 or older. NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY! This program is specifically designed for Spartan Hockey FANS, not hockey players - all are welcome, regardless of skill level.
