The Juneau Douglas Ice Association helped kick off another season at Treadwell Ice Arena by bringing back the Rocky Mountain Hockey School last week. More than 50 players took the ice for three hours a day during a weeklong camp funded thanks in part with the city’s Youth Activity Grant. The group is hosting a learn to play session on Aug. 30 for kids.
