BERLIN — Hockey for boys and girls is about to begin its season.
Registration is now open for the ski and snowboard program and scholarships are available based on income needs.
Recreation hockey development: A low-key in-house league will start practices at the Notre Dame Arena on Saturday, Nov. 16, at 9 a.m., and continue on Saturdays and Sundays with an occasional Wednesday for any boy or girl ages 5-15. Children should be OK with skating — this program is designed to develop hockey skills. If skating skills are needed, call the Notre Dame Arena and ask about their Learn To Skate Program. The cost is $200 total for the season. The season will last until mid-March. Register at the Berlin Recreation Center. You can participate in a road toll on Sunday, Oct. 27, from 10 a.m.-2 p.m., at the Glen Road intersection at Veteran’s Memorial Park (Gazebo area). Call (603) 752-2010 if you have any questions. Volunteer coaches or relatives who wish to get on the ice with their children are welcome.
Third- to sixth-grade ski and snowboard program: Register now at the Berlin Recreation Center until Dec. 10 for the 2020 season of ski and snowboard lessons with Wildcat instructors. Third grade students must ski — Wildcat does not offer snowboard instruction for third graders. The six-week program with a $100 lesson fee, and if equipment is needed, the cost is an additional $50, payable at Berlin Recreation. Equipment excludes a helmet, which can be rented at Wildcat for $25 for the six-week program or $5 weekly, payable to Wildcat. Since students will be released early from school they must be in good standing — grades, behavior and attendance — in order to qualify. Third and fourth grades will attend on Fridays starting Jan. 10. Fifth and sixth grades will attend on Thursdays starting Jan. 9.
Scholarships: Due to a generous donation from Wildcat/Attitash Corporation and their season pass holders, limited scholarships are available based on income needs and school performance. The deadline to apply and return scholarship application is Wednesday, Nov. 13. For more information call (603) 752-2010.
