KENT, January 22, 2013 — The 2013 Seattle Thunderbirds Hockey School will take place over two weeks in August at ShoWare Center in Kent. The dates of the 2013 Hockey School are Monday, August 5, to Saturday, August 10, and Monday, August 12, to Saturday, August 17.
Participants in the T-Birds fifth annual Hockey School can get half off the price of the second week if they sign up for both weeks of the camp.
The 2013 Thunderbirds Hockey School will consist of six groups. There are four youth groups: Group A for 6, 7 & 8-year-olds, Group B for 9 & 10-year-olds, Group C for 11 & 12 year-olds and Group D for 13 & 14 year-olds. There will be an Adult group for players 18-years-old and older.
For the fourth consecutive year the T-Birds will have a Junior Prep Group which will be geared towards 15 to 19-year-old players preparing for their upcoming junior season. This camp will be difficult and challenging and will focus on conditioning and pace.
T-Bird players will be participating in both the on-ice and off-ice sessions of the Junior Prep Group as they prepare for the 2013-14 season.
Players interested in the Junior Prep Group will be required to call T-Birds Hockey Operations Assistant Jeff Caso at 253-239-7825 to register.

The Adult group will feature a two hour on-ice session preceded by an off-ice video instruction session.
Youth Group registrants will receive a hockey school jersey while Adult and Junior Prep registrants will receive a hockey school t-shirt.
