The 14th-annual Niedermayer Hockey School got underway at Western Financial Place Arena Monday, Aug. 4. With 160 registered participants ranging from age six to 14, the hockey school runs from through Friday, Aug. 8. Each day features eight hours of training, including on-ice sessions, off-ice dryland training, read-and-react sessions,  cross training or pool time, along with hockey talk and lunch. Proceeds raised from the school are donated to the Niedermayer Family Fund, which provides $10,000 annually towards local charities and projects in the Kootenay area.
