Trine Youth Hockey Program Taking Shape
Thursday Feb 16, 2017 12:31pm
Trine University • Angola, IN

By: James Tew

A partnership between Trine University and the Dekko Foundation will offer children and teens the opportunity to develop athletic and leadership skills through participation in skating and ice hockey.  Trine University expects to hire a youth hockey program director in the very near future, with programming to begin in August.

The university has received a $2.5 million grant from the Dekko Foundation to develop youth sports programs in its new Thunder Ice Arena and to aid with the construction costs of the arena and the MTI Center.

Following the American Development Model set forth by USA Hockey, Trine University and its partners will provide age-appropriate, age-specific programming that promotes the integration of high-performance cross-ice practices and games into youth hockey. The new director will lead the development and implementation of a unified hockey program and work closely with community partners, including the YMCA of Steuben County and area schools, to develop a long-term vision for the program.

Trine University expects to serve 170 youth in its hockey program and will make its programming available to youth from all economic backgrounds, with the Dekko Foundation grant helping provide hockey equipment to participating youth.

The Thunder Ice Arena also will have hours available for open skating.
