Oklahoma State coach John Smith, U.S. World Team member Andy Hrovat and U.S. National Team member Jared Frayer each are scheduled to conduct clinics during the event on Friday and Saturday, Nov. 3-4, in Lansing, Mich.

Smith, a four-time World Champion and two-time Olympic Gold Medalist, has led Oklahoma State to the past four NCAA team titles. Smith is scheduled to conduct an afternoon clinic on Nov. 3.
