Christmas Break Hockey School
December 21 and 22
Halifax Forum/Civic Complex

This school is focused on individual skills and is a great tune-up for the second half of the season.

The sessions are high tempo with little down time. The schedule for these schools is designed to allow most players the opportunity to do more than one school (ie: puck handling/shooting and power skating).

To maximize individual attention, every group will be limited to 24 players. This school is open to boys and girls from ages 5 – 17.
