Try hockey for free?
Aspen Junior Hockey is inviting boys and girls to the Lewis Ice Arena at the Aspen Recreation Center to participate in Try Hockey for Free Day on Nov. 2.
"We look forward to introducing new families to our sport," said Shaun Hathaway, the new director of Aspen Junior Hockey. He said boys and girls ages 4 to 9 are invited to the free clinic at noon on Nov. 2 "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.
The program, designed to provide youth hockey associations a national platform to introduce new kids to the sport, is a joint effort among USA Hockey, the National Hockey League and NHL member clubs.
