Mercyhurst Junior Lakers Hockey Program Announced
Two local organizations are teaming up, offering more athletic opportunities to kids in our area.
The Lake Erie Sports Alliance are now the Mercyhurst Jr. Lakers, part of a partnership with Mercyhurst University.
Not only are the university and the athletics program now partners, they’re also launching a new initiative for younger children.
The new Little Lakers Learn to Skate and Play program offers ice access for those hitting the ice for the first time.
Leaders say the partnership is a natural pairing and beneficial to both organizations.
Leaders say they hope programs like this offer more opportunities for local kids, reducing the need to leave the area for world-class youth sports programs.
