My name is Ben Oskroba. As some of you may know Alec Hagaman and I are the new Youth Hockey Directors. I’m entering my 7th season as an assistant captain for the Peoria Rivermen. Prior to that I played NCAA Div-1 at Northeastern University. Alec Hagaman is entering his 6th season with the Rivermen and serving his 2nd as team Captain. He played his college hockey at University of Wisconsin River Falls. We both have a strong passion for the game of hockey and love working with youth players. We enjoy helping them develop their skills and watching their passion for the game grow. We are looking forward to getting the chance to work with the players and meet everyone.
As the season approaches, we are putting together a skill clinic that will take place throughout the season on Monday nights at 5:15. This clinic will allow the players to get extra ice time and work on their game. During this ice session we will be focusing on skating, stickhandling, shooting and passing. It will be open to all age groups. The cost will be $20 per session. We do ask that you reserve a spot ahead of time by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. This will allow us to make sure that we will have the appropriate player to coach ratio. That will allow us to make sure that all the kids get the most out of each session.
We are excited to get to work with all of the players and to meet all of you. We are looking forward to getting the Hockey season started. See you around the rink.
