InSports Hockey Clinic
Practicing on the same ice as the pros is a dream for many. InSports teamed up with New Directions of North Minneapolis to host 22 youth hockey players at an InSports hockey clinic at the Xcel Energy Center. The hour on the ice was spent polishing shooting, puck handling, and skating skills. Following the camp, each student had the opportunity to write down 3 personal goals they had as well as a health goal they would like to accomplish this year. Athletes went home with a healthy MATTER snack, goal sheet, and great memories!
