VGK University allows fans to skate at T-Mobile Arena before game

Vegas Golden Knights President Kerry Bubolz announced a VGK University, a five-session event to give local fans a unique opportunity to learn the ins-and-outs of the game of hockey.

VGK University will take place on Vegas Golden Knights game days, and feature VGK University Sessions including hockey basics, offense offensive and defensive strategies, special teams and coaching preparation.

All sessions will be led by Vegas Golden Knights Senior Vice President Murray Craven and Director of Hockey Operations Misha Donskov in a personal environment.

“The Vegas Golden Knights are thrilled to provide this intimate experience for local hockey fans to learn the intricacies of the game of hockey,” said Vegas Golden Knights President Kerry Bubolz. “The five sessions will cover a variety of topics that will provide a detailed analysis of the key aspects of the game. In addition, the opportunity to skate at T-Mobile Arena, home of the Golden Knights, prior to the educational sessions will add a fun element to the event.”

The package also includes a ticket to each of the five games.

In addition, VGK University will have optional skates at T-Mobile Arena before the VGK University Sessions, allowing attendees to be among the first fans to skate at the arena.

The five-game pack can be purchased for $495, or $250 for full season ticket members and suite holders. Please note the $250 price does not include a game ticket. A portion of every package will be donated to the Vegas Golden Knights Foundation.
