Young hockey players are getting a chance this summer to work on their stick skills by taking on a new sport – lacrosse.
The Anchorage Hockey Association will offer a six-week lacrosse camp beginning Monday on the artificial turf at Ben Boeke Ice Arena. It's the second camp of the year for players ranging in age from elementary school to high school.
Two one-hour sessions are offered each week for four age groups: Younger kids play Monday and Wednesday, older kids Tuesday and Thursday. The first half of each session focuses on skills and is followed by a game during the second half.
