Protec U is your one stop for weekly or special holiday hockey clinics!

The best place to go for hockey clinics in Central NJ is right here at Protec Ponds.  All year long we offer a wide variety of clinics that instruct all the skills you’ll need to better your game.  Additionally, from time to time you’ll even see big name instructors heading our hockey clinics.  No matter your age or skill level, we have exactly what you need.  Some clinics may be age specific, and others will be for all ages, but no matter what we’ll always make sure that participants are paired up with like-skilled players of a similar age group to ensure the best learning experience possible.  Check out our current hockey clinic offerings, below:
