Training with a Pro!

It’s back! Local kids are getting another chance to train with local hockey hero Carter Hutton of the Buffalo Sabres at ‘Training with a Pro – The Hockey Edition’.

Photo Gallery: Training with a Pro will appear here on the public site.

The clinic is taking place on Wednesday, Aug. 14, at the Lakehead University Hangar. The clinic will take kids through a dry-land training workout where they will meet and have a photo taken with Carter, courtesy of PuckShots Photography. Dry-land training stations will be led by local up-and-coming hockey players and trainers from Thrive Strength & Wellness.   

Registration cost is $50 per participant, with all proceeds in support of PRO Kids!

The clinic will run from 6:00 to 8:00 pm for participants’ ages 5-13 years. Groups will be established based on age.

To register, call 625-2351.

We would like to recognize and thank Tbaytel for coming on as the presenting sponsor for this clinic.

Conquer the Tower

The fundraiser that makes the biggest splash! Each fall we invite local community leaders and business owners to take the plunge off the diving towers at the Canada Games Complex. The more money raised the higher they have to jump.
