TRY HOCKEY FOR FREE!
Manchester, VT – Northshire Hockey Association invites boys and girls of all ages to Riley Rink on Saturday, November 2nd from 9:45-10:45 a.m. for a Try Hockey for Free clinic. Have you ever wanted to try hockey? Now is your chance to experience ice hockey for the first time and learn the basics of the sport in a fun, safe environment.
Try Hockey For Free Day is part of Come Play Hockey Month. This program, designed to provide youth hockey associations a national platform to introduce new kids to the sport, is a joint effort between USA Hockey, the National Hockey League, and NHL member clubs. With Total Hockey and Liberty Mutual Responsible Sports, the official sponsors of Try Hockey For Free Day, USA Hockey has 500 locations offering kids this unique opportunity.
“We look forward to introducing new families to our sport,” said Sharon Poddick, President of NHA. “All ages and abilities are encouraged to try hockey for free during our USA Hockey sponsored event. All you need are skates (hockey, figure or borrow some from NHA), helmet (any type such as ski, bike or hockey) and gloves (winter gloves will work perfectly).” Participants will go through drills and fun games on the ice during an NHA youth hockey practice.
Pre-registration is required. To register please visit www.TryHockeyForFree.com or contact Sharon Poddick at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Northshire Hockey Association will be hosting a registration night for all interested youth hockey players at Riley Rink Thursday, September 26th from 5:30 pm – 7:30 p.m.
For a second year in a row, Northshire Hockey Association will be offering FREE hockey instruction for boys and girls ages 6 and under at Riley Rink during the upcoming 2013-14 hockey season.
“Our free learn-to-play program was a big success last year,” says Sharon Poddick, President of NHA. “The kids’ skill improvement was impressive and the coaches made each practice a lot of fun. We’re anticipating a great turnout this year as many of our families have already told us they’re returning since last year was such a good experience.”
The free program starts October 26th and runs for approximately 15 weeks. Practices will take place once a week on Saturday mornings at 9:45 am. NHA’s only required prerequisite for participation in the free age 6 and under program is that each prospective player be an independent skater.
NHA has limited numbers of equipment rental packages available for $30. Packages include all equipment needed by new players except for a hockey stick and skates. For more information about this free hockey opportunity, equipment packages, or getting started in playing youth hockey please email Karen Grabher at email@example.com.
