Now that our newest members just graduated, we need some new “fresh meats” to coach! Our new space in Bunkkeri allows us to offer more training time and opportunities also on the beginners course, and in a much much nicer schedule -we have a quite nice package to offer for you guys!

Our freshmeats right after graduation

The fresh meat course training times are Mondays evening (20:00-22:00) and Saturdays afternoon (12:00-14:00), and these trainings will be held in Bunkkeri (Itäinen Vaihdekuja 8). We will mostly work on the same skills on Mondays and Saturdays, so it is ok if you can’t attend both. Besides Mondays and Saturdays, we will have some off skate practises and/or “rule school” and other cool stuff on Tuesdays at 18:30-20:30. These sessions are held in Pohjois-Haagan nuorisotalo (Teuvo Pakkalan tie 5C). During the course you get to watch and learn the game on Friday scrimmages in Bunkkeri as well.

The course begins in the first week of February with getting to know each other and tuning our gears. The last training sessions and skill tests will be held in April, after which you can join HRD as a full member!

BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE! With the course fee you also get to participate in our all-league trainings in the end of April! WOW!.

We will have several skilled trainers taking care of the course, and our Finnish National Champs team, the Queen B’s, will come to help you in each and every practise -this way we will make sure that you get the most out of your course!

We will take the first 25 skaters to the course. The course costs 120 €. You can sign in for the course by sending e-mail to hrd.freshmeat@gmail.com
