For boys and girls interested in joining youth ice hockey, there are a few skills they need to acquire first. To smooth the way, the boroughs league is promoting upcoming classes.
Triboro Titans Youth Hockey represents Southborough, Marlborough and Westborough. They asked me to share news on the upcoming sessions.
One offering is focused on learning the game.

Prior to participation, they highly recommend skating lessons.
Fortunately, there’s a class for that. Despite it’s title, it’s not just for those who don’t know how to skate.
