Generals Are Focusing Their Attention On Women
First Annual Outback Steakhouse Women's Hockey Clinic Debuts Tuesday
March 14, 2002 Press Release
Greensboro, NC - The Greensboro Generals of the East Coast Hockey League (ECHL) have teamed up with Outback Steakhouse to give women an inside look at hockey. The First Annual Outback Steakhouse Women's Hockey Clinic takes place on Tuesday, March 19 from 5:30 - 9:00. Registration for the clinic is only $20.00 for non-season ticket holders and $15.00 for season ticket holders. The price of joining the clinic includes a free meal courtesy of Outback Steakhouse.
The Women's Hockey Clinic will incorporate six stations on the finer points of the game. The clinic will start with a tour of the Generals locker room with some of the players. From there, it's off to a session with the Generals coaching staff, with head coach Alex Godynyuk and assistant coach Sal Manganaro giving an in-depth discussion on building a team and strategy. Station three will give the ladies a chance to talk with the people who usually receive the loudest boos - the officials. ECHL referee Jason Rollins and linesman Mark Hamlett will go through all the rules and regulations of the game, answering the toughest of questions along the way. The next stop will take the women to the press box, where Generals play-by-play announcer Arley Johnson will go through his routine and preparation for broadcasting a game. Finally, the clinic concludes with an on-ice demonstration from the Greensboro based women's hockey team the Carolina Angels, followed by a chance to learn the best technique for shooting a puck from the Generals players. The shooting station will include a chance for the women to show their new skills on the ice.
A host of Generals players, led by captain Chris Brassard, will be on hand to serve as tour guides and instructors for the clinic.
Prior to the clinic, the Generals have a pair of games against southeast division foes this weekend. They host the Greenville Grrrowl on Friday night at 7:30, with Christian rock group Avalon performing a postgame concert. Saturday's game against the Pee Dee Pride is “Beach Night,” with the Chairmen of the Board holding a postgame concert. Both Friday and Saturday's concert games are Greensboro News & Record Family Nights at the Greensboro Coliseum. You can get a family four-pak of tickets, four popcorns, four Pepsi's, and a News & Record newspaper for only $28. You can also get a family two-pak for $14, which includes two tickets, two popcorns, two Pepsi's, and a News & Record newspaper.
