King Philip Walpole Youth Hockey invites boys and girls between the ages of 5 and 12 to Norfolk Arena, 1 Dean St., Norfolk, on Saturday, Feb. 20, for a Try Hockey for Free clinic to experience ice hockey for the first time.
New players will be introduced to hockey in a fun, positive and safe environment. No prior experience is necessary, and the first 40 players to register will receive a free USA Hockey jersey, goodie bag and more. Participants should have some skating experience and be able to support themselves on skates, but no prior hockey experience is needed and a limited amount of equipment is available to borrow. At the very least, players must wear 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 includes an hour of hockey at 6 p.m. and then a pizza party before Norfolk Arena’s open skate at 7 p.m.
Interested players must register prior to the event by visiting www.KPWhockey.org.
