Studio One features hockey academy and ways to jump-start gardens

The week on Studio One, The Hockey Academy at Ralph Engelstad Area specializes in teaching young athletes to pick up their game while training with a puck. Players learn to skate comfortably in any direction on the ice. Coaches use a skating treadmill that allows students to skate forward and backward, stick handle and practice shooting. “Having the capacity to show kids in the mirror what they’re doing on their skating stride and what we want to get the most out of it…[is] one of the best things to help kids,” said Hockey Academy coach Karl Goehring. Another benefit to the academy is the lengthy history the coach has in the sport. Goehring is a two-time All-American at UND and was the goaltender on the school’s last national championship team in 2000. Three years ago he decided it was time to give back to the sport he loves. He says the hard work players learn during practice will translate to success on and off the ice.

Also, Tim Shea’s Nursery & Landscaping Manager and Owner, Darlene Shea, will discuss how to get a jumpstart on gardening. Shea has more than 30 years’ experience in horticultural. She will talk about different items that can be used as potting containers. “[Seeds] can be planted in an egg shell, peat pot, egg carton or a tray of some sort. The sky is the limit,” said Shea. She will also discuss replacing containers during different growth stages of the plant. These tips may help seeds sprout early for those itching to start their gardens in spite of a late spring.
