(Hillsborough, NC) – The Orange County SportsPlex invites boys and girls to the SportsPlex on Saturday, Feb. 20 for a Try Hockey For Free clinic as part of Hockey Weekend Across America. Starting at 1:00 pm local youth, ages 4 to 12, are encouraged to experience ice hockey for the first time and learn the basic skills in a fun, safe environment.

Try Hockey for Free“We look forward to welcoming families to SportsPlex to try our great sport of ice hockey” said Ken DiOrio, Hockey Director. “Our goal is for these families to enjoy watching their kids learn new skills with big smiles on their faces.”

We ask participants to dress accordingly.  You will be standing on a HUGE block of solid ICE!, We also ask if you have a bike helmet and snow gloves to bring those as well.  We have some helmets for use but at a limited supply.  Each participant MUST WEAR A HELMET on the ice. We will have a good number of rental skates to use as well as hockey sticks.

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 a national platform to introduce new kids to the sport. In addition to presenting sponsor Kraft Heinz, Total Hockey and Liberty Mutual Insurance are official sponsors of Try Hockey For Free Days.
