New players will be introduced to hockey in a fun, positive and safe environment. Previous ice skating experience is necessary, and the first 40 players to register will receive a free USA Hockey goodie bag and more. Full equipment is highly recommended, and KPW will supply a limited amount of equipment for new players to borrow. At the very least, players must have a helmet and gloves.
King Philip Walpole Youth Hockey is a non-profit community hockey organization for boys and girls from Norfolk, Plainville, Walpole and Wrentham. Players learn from USA Hockey-certified volunteer coaches who help new players build confidence and develop fundamentals through a focus on small-area games, skating skills and fun.
The Try Hockey for Free Day will begin with registration at 5 p.m., and include an hour of hockey at 6 p.m. and then a pizza party before Norfolk Arena’s open skate at 7 p.m. Norfolk Arena, 1 Dean St., Norfolk.
Interested players must register prior to the event. More details and registration information can be found at www.kpwhockey.org or by contacting KPW president Randy Yanoshak at 571-215-7729.
