Hockey Development Clinic Registration Now Open!

Registration is now open for the SAM Hockey Development Clinic for players ages 7 -9. The clinic, running on Sundays starting July 12 - August 2, 2020, will be at the Camden National Bank Ice Vault from 2:45 pm - 4 pm. 

The players will focus on skating, stick handling, and shooting, therefore, players must be able to skate and have a basic foundational understanding of hockey. There may be controlled scrimmages where players will have the opportunity to put learned skills immediately into action. 

Registration is limited 30 on a first-come-first-served basis.  

The cost to participate is $100. Payment is due at the July 12 session.
