North Park Dek Hockey Clinics

Dek Star Hockey’s experienced coaches will serve as instructors for the free clinics, which will focus on introducing young players to the sport of dek hockey through individual skill building, including stick handling, shooting and passing. In order to participate, kids will need a stick, shin pads, elbow pads, gloves and helmet with full face shield or cage. Dek hockey is a great way for a young player to get started without the additional cost associated with ice hockey or the need to learn how to skate. Dek hockey is also an affordable way to sharpen hockey skills while learning game play and teamwork.

To register for the clinics

Email DekStarHockey@comcast.net Please include the player’s full name, age and selected clinic location, as well as parent’s full name, email address and phone number. Go here for directions to the dek hockey rinks

All weather cancellations will be posted on the Allegheny County Rinks page on the Dek Star website.

There will be four age divisions: 4-7; 7-9; 10-12; and 13-15. Individual player evaluations, team placements and spring season will occur in March. Individuals may register online at www.DekStarHockey.com
