Hockey program still seeking players
Registration is still open for those wishing to be part of Craig Youth Hockey Association’s Mites program available for children born from 2006 to 2008 wanting to learn the sport.
Sessions take place Tuesdays and Thursdays at Loudy-Simpson Park Ice Arena, 600 S. Ranney St. The first session has begun and runs through Dec. 18, and the second runs from Jan. 5 to Feb. 5.
Those registering for Mites must register with USA Hockey first.
Some students are choosing to chart their own course after graduation, bucking the conventional path of college or trade school, but with no less ambition than their degree-seeking peers. Moffat County High School senior Tyler Gonzales is one such student, who has chosen to dive into a full-time job at Chaos Ink after graduating and feed his passion for design and entrepreneurialism.
