August 19, 2013, Colorado Springs, Colo. (ISN) – USA Hockey announced today that rinks and associations can now register to host Try Hockey For Free events for the 2013-14 season at usahockey.com/programservices.
The first Try Hockey For Free Day will be Nov. 2, 2013, as part of Come Play Hockey Month. The second opportunity will occur March 1, 2014, during Hockey Weekend Across America, presented by CCM.
Try Hockey For Free Day, supported by the NHL and its member clubs, is a program designed to provide youth hockey associations and local ice hockey rinks a national platform to introduce new kids to the sport.
Over 16,000 kids ages 4-9 tried hockey for the first time during last year’s events, and USA Hockey is looking to build on the excitement of the upcoming Olympic Winter Games to host a record number of participants this winter.
Liberty Mutual Insurance and Total Hockey are the official sponsors of Try Hockey For Free Days.
