Grand Rapids – The Grand Rapids Griffins Youth Hockey Camp heads to the lakeshore.
Griff’s IceHouse West in the Netherlands (4444 Holland Ave.) is hosting the five-day camp from August 16-20, giving kids from Ottawa, Allegan and Muskegon counties easy access to professional instruction from first-time Griffins players and coaches.
The Griffins Youth Hockey camp will be directed by Griffins assistant coach Matt Macdonald and right winger Dominik Shine. Also appearing during the week will be Grand Rapids assistant coach and 16-year-old NHL veteran Mike Nobley as well as longtime captain and defenseman Brian Lachoff.
“The Griffins have always had great support from the lakeshore youth hockey communities,” said Bob Kasser, camp manager and vice president of community relations and broadcasting for the Griffins. “As we look forward to strengthening our relationship with all of them, the hockey camp in the Netherlands makes a lot of sense.”
Offered to children aged 6-16, the camp helps players maximize their skills with 12.5 hours of snowboarding instruction focused on skill development and strength skating. The $300 per child cost includes a camp shirt, daily lunch served by popular local restaurants, and a locker room to store gear for the week. For more information about the camp or to register your child, please call (616) 774-4585 ext. 3027.
