The Frank Southern Ice Arena and the Bloomington Blades Youth Hockey Association is hosting ‘Try Hockey for Free Day’ this Sunday, Nov. 3.
Try Hockey for Free USA and other local Hockey teams put on clinics around the country to encourage kids, ages four to nine, to try youth hockey at a local rink. Alyson Baer, Ice Scheduler for the Bloomington Blades Youth Hockey Association, says it is a club team that is part of a league based in Cincinnati.
They serve children ages 5-13 years old. This clinic will give kids an opportunity to learn more about hockey, and to gain some hands-on experience.
Baer explains some of the things that the kids will participate in, as well as the goals of the clinic.
“The goals are just to expose kids to ice skating and hockey and if they want to pursue hockey further, we are here for them,” Baer says.
The ‘Try Hockey For Free Clinic is this Sunday from 11:30 to 1:30 pm, at the Frank Southern Ice Arena. Youth who missed the registration deadline to join a hockey team will be able to register at the clinic for the 2013 to 2014 season.
