For the past two weeks, our skaters have been staying cool at the St. Paul skating clinics! Every Tuesday and Thursday, skaters come from all over the Twin Cities area to work on their skills at the Highland Arena.
Our Learn to Skate group has been working on basic skills like starting, stopping, and turning, while the Learn to Play Hockey and Power Skating groups have been working on speed and stick-handling. However, all groups have been learning the importance of hard work, sportsmanship, and perseverance.
There's no one better to help teach these skills than the coaches that volunteer with the foundation. Our coaches include members of the University of Minnesota women's hockey team, the St. Paul Police Activities League, and various high school hockey players from Cretin Derham Hall, De La Salle, and Mahtomedi. We've even had some help from Tommy and Joe Paradise, Herb Brooks' grandsons! Their dedication to the sport and the youth are what allow our programs to be successful!
