New Player Orientation 2017

We will be having MGHA New Player Orientation on Sunday, September 10th from 4pm-5:30pm at Kavanaugh’s Esquire Club.

This orientation is for new players and their mentors.  The eagle-eyed among you have likely noticed that this is the same day as our first on-ice clinics; orientation is an off-ice introduction to the culture and quirks of our league. We strongly encourage you to attend. You do not need to bring anything with you, although we recommend you have your gear with you and ready for on-ice practice, which starts at 6pm (5:30-6pm will be for folks to get dressed to get on the ice).  We have a guest speaker, Erica Hagen, to talk about implicit bias, and we’ll also cover what makes our league different from traditional leagues.

Kavanaugh’s is a supper club located at 1025 Sherman Avenue, just around the corner from Hartmeyer. We will be providing light snacks; please feel free to purchase your own refreshments. We strongly discourage you from drinking any alcohol prior to getting on the ice for clinics.  There will be time to get to Hartmeyer and change immediately after orientation, for those of you going to the beginner clinic.

The Ironman is taking place on Sunday, so many downtown streets will be closed through midnight.  Avoid downtown when traveling to / from Hartmeyer!
