The Hagerstown Ice and Sports Complex invites boys and girls ages 4 to 9 to the ice rink Saturday at 10:30 a.m. for a Try Hockey for Free clinic to experience ice hockey for the first time and learn the basics of the sport in a fun, safe environment. Please arrive by 10 a.m.
The event is part of Come Play Hockey Month. The program, designed to provide youth hockey associations a national platform to introduce children 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 those ages 4 to 9 this opportunity.
“We look forward to introducing new families to our sport,” said Michael Donahue, ice rink hockey director.
“To help keep costs reasonable for parents, we’ve incorporated programs to provide first-year players with equipment for the season.”
