The Central Collegiate Hockey Association (CCHA), FSN, RBK, the Detroit Red Wings, Tim Hortons and Perani’s Hockey World will be hosting a “Have Fun, Play Hockey” clinic on Saturday, Sept. 20, from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. (EDT) at Ferris State University's Ewigleben Ice Arena in Big Rapids, Mich.
The free clinic is open to boys and girls ages 5-11 who have not played organized hockey. Pre-registration for the clinic is required.
“Last year was the first time we had an opportunity to take part in the ‘Have Fun, Play Hockey’ clinics and it was a complete success,” said Ferris State men's ice hockey head coach Bob Daniels. “The participants all had a wonderful experience, and for our players it reminded a lot of them of the joy they experienced the first time they took to the ice. We are thrilled to once again take part in the series of clinics that the CCHA puts on at each of the member schools.”
All equipment including skates and a stick will be provided to participants, who must pre-register for the clinic. Members of the 2008-09 Ferris State hockey team will be on hand to mentor the kids participating on and off the ice.
“We are really excited to once again offer the opportunity for boys and girls to experience the fun of hockey for the first time by taking part in a ‘Have Fun, Play Hockey’ clinics,” commented CCHA Commissioner Tom Anastos. “Over the first three years of this program, more than 1,500 kids have had a chance to experience the fun of hockey for the very first time and we take great pride in our role in facilitating that experience for them.”
