Rec Aide Robert Campbell
Robert iis head coach of the Mite and Squirt Bruins Hockey travel teams as well as assistant director for the house league Bears Hockey program. He grew up in Great Neck, playing with the Park District hockey program from age 7 through 18. He now works for the Park District full-time.

The Great Neck Park District Bears Ice Hockey Program caters to children between the ages of 5 and 12, who would like to learn ice hockey in a stress-free, fun environment. This is strictly an in-house program that prepares the student with on-ice conditioning, clinics, special activities, scrimmage and intramural games. From time to time, games with outside teams may take place. NO experience is necessary!

The safety and protection of all participants are of the utmost importance. All hockey players are required to wear an HECC approved helmet with cage, neck guard, shoulder & elbow pads, hockey pants, cup, shin guards and hockey gloves. A stick must also be provided by the participant. The Parkwood Pro Shop has packages available and will be happy to help you with all of your equipment needs.
