Try Hockey For Free Day Coming to Sidner Ice Arena February 23rd

Fremont Flyers Hockey invites children to the Sidner Ice Arena on Saturday, February 23rd for a Try Hockey For Free clinic as part of Hockey Week Across America. Starting at Noon, local youth, ages 4 to 9, are encouraged to experience ice hockey for the first time and learn the basic skills in a fun, safe environment.

“We look forward to welcoming families to the Sidner Ice Arena to try our great sport of ice hockey” said Garrett Poland, Hockey Director.  “Our goal is for these families to enjoy watching their kids learn new skills with big smiles on their faces.”

USA Hockey's Try Hockey program, with the support of the National Hockey League and NHL member clubs, among others, is designed to provide youth hockey associations with a national platform for introducing children to the sport, free of charge. SportsEngine is the presenting sponsor of Try Hockey For Free Day, while Chipotle and Pure Hockey are also official sponsors of the event. USA Hockey has about 350 locations offering this unique opportunity to kids nationwide.
