Skaters will learn the necessary fundamentals to be successful in game situations." - USFS Basic Skills Hockey Curriculum
UPDATE: The McKay 3-on-3 is rescheduled for June 11-14, 2015.
Due to several factors, the McKay 3-on-3 has been rescheduled for June 11-14. Registration has been reopened, and players have until May 28 to register.
Named after former NHL player and Michigan Tech graduate, Randy McKay, this tournament is a great time for competition and honing skills. The program accommodates all age groups and all skill levels. The 3-on-3 is a unique brand of hockey. Play runs concurrently on each half of the ice surface (about 100 feet by 85 feet), which allows for quick games and fast action. The goal is to have good, old-fashioned fun. Sign up and leave your spring fever at the door!
