Growlers Academy Coming to Labrador West
It is with great excitement we are able to announce that Growlers Academy will be coming to Labrador West from February 19-February 21! We are excited to visit the Big Land and to share the ice with the many passionate young hockey players and coaches in the area.
Growlers Academy is a community initiative of the Newfoundland Growlers Hockey Team. Since their inception, the Growlers have been dedicated to the province of Newfoundland and Labrador and Growlers Academy is another connection to the minor hockey community throughout the province. Growlers Academy launched in October and has received excellent feedback from participants and families who have participated in our programming to date. Growlers Academy is focused on providing positive development hockey experiences throughout the province.
Growlers Academy will host sessions for the following age groups on the February 19th weekend – U9, U11, and U13. In addition to the sessions which will be hosted on ice, members of the Growlers Academy Leadership Team will host sessions for local coaches and family members on the evening of February 19th.
All players attending the Growlers Academy Weekend Camp will receive a Growlers Academy jersey, five hours of ice time, the opportunity to win Growlers giveaways, and will also be able to participate in off-ice sessions which will take place on-site or virtually (dependent on Covid Regulations and Guidelines). The cost of the camp will be $100 plus HST. The camp will consist of sessions dedicated to skating, shooting, puck control, passing, team play, small area games and goaltending.
Please note that Growlers Academy will be following the covid regulations and guidelines as set out by the province, local minor hockey association and local municipality. As the camp approaches, we will share other details pertaining to this event.
