S.K.A.T.E. program aims to boost academics in New Richmond hockey
Getting hockey players to make a higher commitment to academics is the reason the S.K.A.T.E. program has been brought to the New Richmond Hockey Association.
S.K.A.T.E. was begun in Minnesota in 1997. Because several New Richmond youth hockey teams skate in Minnesota leagues, New Richmond was allowed to join Minnesota associations in installing this program.
