Tommies hockey schools ready to roll

Call it what you will, gender equality - progressive thinking - good marketing, but St. Thomas University is moving in the right direction with the creation of men's and women's hockey school programs this summer.

This isn't meant to politicize the issue but I know that Mike Power would be pleased with the addition of the Lady's school at STU. Let's be honest, a men's hockey school is not a new concept for Fredericton but a high level women's school is something that has been non-existent for far too long. Kudos to Peter Murphy and Mike Eagles.
St. Thomas University will be an all girls' school July 13-17.

That's when Tommies' women's hockey coach Peter Murphy will run the first all-female hockey school in New Brunswick. It's part of STU's 'Next Step' program, with the instructional components based on Murphy's eight years of experience with Hockey New Brunswick's high performance program.
For the men.
STU's first venture into the hockey school business takes place the week before,
July 6-10 when Mike Eagles and friends conduct the STU Tommies Summer Hockey School.

Eagles and his assistant coach with the men's hockey team, Brad Shepard, will lead the STU Tommies Hockey School out of the Lady Beaverbrook Rink.
