Register today for UNO Hockey 101 on Feb. 2 
Jan. 27 is the final day to register for the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) Department of Athletics' second "Hockey 101 - A Women's Guide to Hockey." The event, which takes place Thursday, Feb. 2, from 4:30 to 9 p.m. at the Qwest Center Omaha, benefits the Diet Pepsi/UNO Women's Walk and Liz's Legacy. The registration fee is $75 per person, which includes a buffet dinner with the Maverick hockey team and coaches, a long-sleeved Hockey 101 T-shirt, an informational Hockey 101 packet, the book Hockey 101 for Dummies by John Davidson and John Steinbreder, free parking and free admission to the UNO vs. Lake Superior State hockey game Feb. 3 or 4.

Participants will get a real behind-the-scenes sense of what it's like to play Maverick hockey at the Qwest. In addition, they will spend time on the ice, trying on the player's equipment and putting it to the test, as well as getting photos taken with the players and coaches.

The Diet Pepsi/UNO Women's Walk, now in its 25th year, funds scholarships for female student athletes at UNO. Liz's Legacy, named after Omaha community leader Liz Karnes, funds the advancement of cancer research and care at the UNMC Eppley Cancer Center.

Hockey 101 participants must be at least 16 years of age. The topics from last year's event have been expanded to include:

  • Special teams/power play and penalty kill;
  • Offense and defensive patterns;
  • Officiating and rule knowledge for all levels of hockey and all knowledge levels;
  • Training and equipment; and
  • Panel discussions on recruiting, life as a UNO hockey student-athlete, strategies and superstitions.
