The Trent University Men’s Extramural Hockey has
been a growing sports club throughout the past few years. The team’s

administration, students and fans. With returning head coach, Gavin McKnight,

will produce an atmosphere for young men to grow as individuals, gain or

to help make their Trent University experience more memorable.
Tryouts for the team this year are going to be held
at Kinsmen Arena in Peterborough, on the days of September 22, 23, 24 and 25
from 12pm-1pm. It is $15 per skate or $50 for all 4.
