The Pittsburgh Penguins will once again hold two youth hockey programs this summer. The Scrimmage Camp will take place June 22-26 at Ice Castle in Castle Shannon and the Summer Hockey School will be held August 17-21 at the RMU Island Sports Center on Neville Island. Both programs are presented by Alcoa.
Penguins’ assistant coach Mike Yeo and two-time Stanley Cup champion Phil Bourque will serve as instructors. Penguins’ power skating instructor Besa Tsintsadze will also be on hand to assist players.
The Penguins Scrimmage Camp will feature skills sessions, power skating, scrimmages, playoffs and championship games. Participants will receive a camp jersey and trophy.
The Penguins Summer Hockey School includes 2½ hours of ice time each day of the five-day camp, on-ice skills and power skating sessions, conditioning and scrimmages.
Youngsters ages 5-17 are eligible to participate. The camps will be broken into four groups: mites, squirts, pee wees and bantams/midgets.
Registration for each program is $395 per child ($295 for goalies). Children registering for both programs and families enrolling more than one child per program are eligible for discounts.
