UMBC Ice Hockey Volunteers With Baltimore Stars Youth Hockey

In the spirit of the holidays, the UMBC Men's Ice Hockey team decided to volunteer their time to help the Baltimore Stars Youth Hockey team last month. "It's actually a lot of fun," says Junior Captain Nik Jost.  Nik, along with three other players (Sr. Justin Rothchild, Jr. Dan Durantaye and Jr. Justin Stewart) showed up to help out at a Baltimore Stars Youth Hockey (BYH) Mite practice.  Many players on the team have expressed interest in helping coach local youth players.  With this year's schedule being light on Friday games, it provided a perfect fit for the guys to help out with the BYH Friday evening practices.

The BYH players were visibly excited to see the UMBC players on the ice with them, wearing their UMBC gold helmets.  Each UMBC player took a station at the practice, and provided extra-personalized instruction for the up-and-coming players.  Justin Stewart helped players with their shooting, while Durantaye and Rothchild worked on stick handling and Captain Nik Jost worked on small game drills.

"This is a great learning experience for both the kids and our [UMBC] guys," said Head Coach Aaron Voegtli.  "The youth players are getting a chance to work with really great hockey players, and our guys are getting a chance to give back (and see what it's like to coach).  Who knows, maybe some of these kids will play for UMBC some day!"
