Eagles in the Wild…

Giving Back to the Community

Members of the Men’s and Women’s Ice Hockey teams have been volunteering for the Watertown Youth Hockey Association on Sundays throughout the fall.  In fact, they have been volunteering with the organization for several years, supporting local youth skating and hockey.  Watertown provides a free Learn-to-Skate program and partners with the New York Rangers to provide a low-cost Learn-to-Play program.  Our Eagles volunteer to help all of the kids have a great experience with plenty of encouragement, support, and assistance on the ice as they learn to skate and get to know the game of hockey.

Don’t miss out on any of the action – head on over to the Athletics website for upcoming competitions, season standings, stats, and links to game live streams. Don’t forget to tag your social media posts with #GoPostEagles – we’ll share our favorites on the digital screens around campus, on the official Post University accounts, and in this newsletter!
