As part of the Pittsburgh Penguins’ continuing effort to support youth hockey in the region, the team will hold its annual Youth Hockey Scrimmage Camp June 21-25 at Ice Castle in Castle Shannon.
The camp, open to youth hockey age levels from 5-17, will include skills instruction, power skating and a round-robin tournament -- enabling youngsters to have fun playing competitive hockey in a relaxed summer environment.
Two-time Stanley Cup champion Phil Bourque and Robert Morris University hockey coach Derek Schooley will be among the instructors. World-renowned power-skating instructor Besa Tsintsadze also will be on staff.
The camp features a large staff of coaches for a low skater-to-instructor ratio and also includes dedicated goaltender instruction. Each player will receive a team trophy at the conclusion of the round-robin tournament on Friday, June 25.
More than 125 skaters already are enrolled in four age levels: Mite (5-8), Squirt (9-10), Pee Wee (11-12), Bantam-Midget (13-17).
A limited number of spaces are still available. Players may register online at pittsburghpenguins.com/scrimmage camp
