All participants at the Pittsburgh Penguins’ Summer Youth Hockey Camps will be able to register on-site for free baseline concussion testing.
UPMC Sports Medicine and the Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation have teamed up to offer the free baseline tests to all youth hockey players in the Pittsburgh region.
“All local youth players already have received a password from USA Hockey to register for this one-of-a-kind testing program,” said Dave Soltesz, president of the Penguins Foundation, “but if any of our summer camp participants have not yet had the chance to register, they can do so directly at the camps.”
The Penguins are offering three youth programs this summer:
• The annual “Scrimmage Camp” June 20-24 at the Ice Castle in Castle Shannon, open to youth players in four age groups from 5-17. Register for the camp at www.pittsburghpenguins.com/scrimmagecamp
• The team’s first “Girls Hockey Camp” June 23-25 at Ice Castle, open to girls in three age groups from 5-19. Register for the camp at www.pittsburghpenguins.com/girlscamp
• The annual “Penguins Summer Hockey School” August 15-19 at RMU Island Sports Center, open to players in four age groups from 5-17. Register for the camp at www.pittsburghpenguins.com/hockeyschool
