T-Birds host hockey school

The 2014 Seattle Thunderbirds Hockey School, which takes place over two weeks in August at ShoWare Center in Kent, has added a fourth youth group to the school due to high demand.

The T-Birds have added a session for players who are 13, 14 & 15 year-olds. The dates of the 2014 Hockey School are Monday, August 4, to Saturday, August 9, and Monday, August 11, to Saturday, August 16. Participants can get half off the price of the second week if they sign up for both weeks of the camp.

The 2014 Thunderbirds Hockey School will consist of five groups. There are four youth groups: Group A for 6, 7 & 8-year-olds, Group B for 9 & 10-year-olds, Group C for 11 & 12 year-olds and Group D for 13, 14 & 15 year-olds. There will also be an Adult Group for players 18-years-old and older.

The Youth groups will receive an hour and a half of on ice instruction followed by a one hour off-ice session. On the Saturday of the camp there will be a scrimmage game for each group.

The Adult group will feature a two hour on-ice session preceded by an off-ice video instruction session.

Youth group registrants will receive a hockey school jersey while Adult group registrants will receive a hockey school t-shirt.

T-Birds assistant coaches Matt O'Dette and Tyler Alos will be the lead instructors at the 2014 Hockey School. T-Birds players taking part as instructors will be announced in mid-July.

To make room for the new youth group, the Parent and Child Group previously announced has been cancelled.

There will be free wireless internet available in ShoWare Center for parents who wish to use it while their child is taking part in the hockey school.
