To teach the fundamentals of ice skating and hockey while creating an environment that cultivates fun and learning. During the instructional session time, students will be taught how to control their edges, skate forwards and backwards, pass and shoot a puck, and many more things. During the "game time", students will be able to use their newly acquired skills in a half-ice hockey game which will be monitored by coaches and staff!

Dan Morris has been coaching at OU since 2000. In that time, he has led the Bobcats to the 2004 ACHA National Championship and several regular season and tournament titles.
Philip played college hockey at Ohio University.
