As part of their Come Play Hockey month initiative, USA hockey is inviting children who haven’t thought about it to give the sport a try. In their “Try Hockey For Free” day, being held across the country tomorrow, November 5th, USA hockey will be hosting free hour-long clinics at various rinks. From the press release:â†µ
“We are excited, through Try Hockey for Free Day, to have the opportunity to give so many boys and girls the chance to experience the joys our sport already provides to hundreds of thousands of kids all across America,” said Pat Kelleher, assistant executive director of membership development for USA Hockey.â†µ
“Through the efforts of the NHL and its member clubs, rink owners all across the U.S., our affiliates and local youth associations, and many others, we’ve built significant momentum in so many areas in helping our sport continue to move forward.”â†µ
