LEWISBURG, Pa. – The Miller Center for Recreation and Wellness is pleased to announce its partnership with two well-known and established organizations, North Union United Soccer Club and Bison Field Hockey Club. Both programs will use the Miller Center as its home base during the winter months to run leagues, camps, clinics and tournaments. “We are excited to have two premiere organizations teaming with us to create a center that can provide a variety of sports to our community as well as quality instruction and development for each sport,” said Kyle Snyder, the Sports and Recreation Director.
Bison Field Hockey will have training for all ages and ability levels. You can sign up now at http://bvrec.org/bison-field-hockey/. These clinics and camps focus on very individualized training and attention. Training for field hockey will be Tuesday, Thursday and Friday nights. Tournaments will be held at the Miller Center on December 17th and February 10th. The Bison Field Hockey Club is organized by Jeremy and Sandra Cook. Jeremy is currently serving as the Head Coach at Bucknell University and has played and coached at the international level for 25 years. Sandra served as an assistant coach at multiple universities and also played indoor for the United State Women’s National Team. “Jeremy and I are thrilled that the Miller Center for Recreation and Wellness will be the new home for the Bison Field Hockey Club. This state of the art venue will help to grow the game in our area of Central PA. Partnering with three non-profit community based organizations; like the United States Field Hockey Association, Buffalo Valley Recreation Authority and now the Miller Center for Recreation and Wellness allows us to serve the community through the sport that we love.” Cook said.
North Union United Soccer Club will also be hosting a sanctioned league, tournament and clinics for coaches and players. The sanctioned league will be operating as the Tri-County Futsal League this winter. Games will be played from November to February. Tournaments will be held in the new year. The league is accepting new teams at www.nuunited.com/futsal. The president of NUU, Darsh Bhangdia, said, “NUU is proud to announce a partnership with the Miller Center to bring futsal to the area. Futsal is fast paced soccer on a hard court with a small ball that encourages foot skills and passing. It is a
wonderful opportunity to develop skills and have fun. It is open to all NUU teams in addition to the surrounding town teams and clubs. It will begin in November and run through the end of January”.
