Preds Hockey School In Session
Nashville Predators Hockey School is in session this week with the 8-14 year old age groups hitting the ice at Centennial Sportsplex.

The week long camps are geared towards the beginner-intermediate level male and female players and goaltenders (beginners should have some skating ability). Instructors will emphasize skating skills essential to hockey at all levels. Participants will be refreshed on the basics and given the opportunity to implement stick-handling, passing and shooting through various practice techniques and positional play.
