On Saturday, March 1, local youth hockey associations across the country invited boys and girls ages four to nine years old to their local rinks for a Try Hockey for Free clinic to experience ice hockey for the first time and learn the basics of the sport in a fun, safe environment.
The event was USA Hockey’s most successful event to date. Over 15,800 children at close to 500 locations across the country were introduced to the sport. In the Midwest Affiliate we had 517 children in 13 locations that experienced hockey for the first time! The participating associations and the number of participants at events in Iowa, Nebraska and Kansas are as follows:
Des Moines Youth Hockey 97
Kansas City Stars 81
Omaha Hockey Club 70
Kansas City Fighting Saints 70
Siouxland Youth Hockey 60
Wichita Youth Hockey 44
Saint Joseph Youth Hockey 40
Quad City Hockey 38
Tri City Youth Hockey 35
Freemont Flyers Hockey 31
Dubuque Youth Hockey 23
Lincoln Ice Hockey 21
Iowa City-Coralville Hockey 17
Combined with 521 children that participated in the November 2013 Try Hockey for Free event at various locations across our affiliate, over 1,000 children tried the sport of ice hockey for the very first time during the 2013-2014 hockey season! Those are remarkable numbers and speak volumes to the outstanding efforts of all of our volunteers in each of our communities. You should all be very proud.
