INVITE KIDS TO TRY HOCKEY FOR
– FREE –
On Saturday, November 5th, the New York Rangers will team up with USA Hockey and community ice rinks across the tri-state area to host the first ever “Try Hockey for Free Day” to celebrate “Come Play Youth Hockey Month” throughout November. The event will introduce the sport to over 1,500 children ages 4-9 through free skating and hockey lessons at seven participating rinks in the area. Rangers alumni Adam Graves, Nick Fotiu, Ron Greschner, Glenn Anderson, Brian Mullen, Dave Maloney, Gilles Villemure, Pete Stemkowski, Peter Ferraro and Chris Ferraro will be on hand at each of the rinks throughout the day to help teach the basics of the sport. Complimentary rental skates will be available at each rink, and every child who attends “Try Hockey for Free Day” will receive a free Rangers hockey stick.
“This is a wonderful opportunity for kids to get the chance to play the greatest game on Earth,” said Rangers legend and Special Assistant, Prospect Development and Community Relations, Adam Graves. “These are kids that might not otherwise be able to experience the game of hockey. They are sure to love it and hopefully this ignites a lifelong passion for the sport.”
Participating rinks include Brewster Ice Arena (Brewster, NY), Danbury Ice Arena (Danbury, CT), Ebersole Skating Rink(White Plains, NY), Floyd Hall Arena (Little Falls, NJ), Long Beach Arena(Long Beach, NY), Playland Ice Casino (Rye, NY), and Stergiopoulos Ice Rink (Great Neck, NY).
