Electricians to hold weekly skates

MARQUETTE – The Marquette Electricians Midget AAA youth hockey team will hold weekly skating sessions with new coach Nathan Taurence on Thursday evenings starting this week at Northern Michigan University’s Berry Events Center.

The sessions, to be held from about 9 to 10:30 p.m. and run through the end of July, will be in a scrimmage format for Taurence to do preliminary evaluations of players. Cost to participate is $5 per session.

These skating sessions for this Under-18 team is primarily designed for players born in 1997, 1998 and 1999.

The first-year head coach expects to hold formal team tryouts later this summer, both in the Marquette area and downstate, probably in July.

Prospective players are not required to attend any or all of the skating sessions, though it is encouraged.

For more information, call Taurence at 734-752-3906, or email him at marquetteelectricians@gmail.com.
