The Free Amherst Goalie clinic's taught by Grant Ledyard are now available!
The on ice instruction is meant to build a players confidence through fundamentals. Instruction from Grant Ledyard, Amherst Hockey Director an 18 year NHL player.
There is openings for 8 goalies per session, we kindly ask that you only register for 1 slot as we have a very large program and would like for all goalies to be able to experience this clinic. Also if you sign up for several spots and there is a waiting list we will have to delete your registration to allow for someone else.
For over 25 years Amherst Youth Hockey coaches have played pick-up games after they put their kids to bed. AYH continues to support this opportunity for current and former coaches to get together on the ice for some good spirited competition. Although there is no body checking, full equipment is recommended. All skill levels, ages and gender are welcome as we break into teams of white and dark jerseys. Traditionally, we skate every Monday and Wednesday night but this season the schedule has been tweaked to accommodate our youth players. To be included on the Coaches Ice email list, just send an email to former AYH President Dave Silverberg at
or call him at
870-4460 for scheduling and cost, or just show up at 1 of the skates that will be on our website.
