EAST LANSING, Michigan - Registration for the third annual Spartan Hockey Women's Clinic, hosted by Michigan State head coach Tom Anastos and his wife, Lisa, is now open. The clinic will take place on Wednesday, Sept. 3 from 6-10 p.m. at Munn Ice Arena.
The popular 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 have had great response to the camp the last couple of years, so we're looking forward to hosting it again this season; I think the staff and the players have as much fun as the participants," said head coach Tom Anastos. "It's a unique way for all the participants to get a behind-the-scenes perspective of Spartan hockey as well as gain a better appreciation for the game."
The $100 clinic fee includes your opportunity to go behind the scenes, go on a recruiting tour, tape your own stick, go through a pre-game routine, put on the hockey gear and then hit the ice for some fun. Hockey equipment (including skates) will be provided for those who need it, but participants may bring their own equipment if they choose.
