At Oakhurst, we believe in supporting healthy active kids. And, we know that all the children who participate within the Maine Amateur Hockey Association practice hard each week and give it their all out on the ice at every game.
The Oakie Corner Experience at UMaine Hockey
Because we know how hard these kids work, we are once again teaming up with the UMaine Black Bears Men’s Hockey team to offer a unique experience for Maine’s young hockey players. It’s an exciting program we started last year called The Oakie’s Corner Experience.
This year we will select and host a youth hockey team to be our guests with special seating in The Oakie’s Corner Experience at seven (7) UMaine Black Bears home games (see below schedule). Each team selected will receive the following:
Note: Transportation to and from the game is not provided. Any souvenirs or food items purchased at the arena will be at the team’s expense.

Refuel with Oakhurst Lowfat Chocolate Milk After Exercise
Aspire. Most kids who hit the ice every week or participate in any other sport want to achieve a certain goal
Perspire. And they work hard trying to achieve their goals
Restore. We want to remind all the coaches, parents and all the athletes to remember to take care of their bodies during the upcoming hockey season. One simple way is to drink 16 ounces of lowfat chocolate milk within one hour of training and games in order to refuel.
Research suggests lowfat chocolate milk is superior to drinks like Gatorade for muscle recovery after tough training sessions, workouts and games because it has the right mix of proteins and carbohydrates, which have been shown to refuel and rebuild exhausted muscles, better after heavy exercise. And chocolate milk is great for rehydrating – it’s a delicious, nutrient-laden liquid that will help replace lost fluids after exercise due to sweating.
