Flathead Valley Hockey Association to Hold Instructional Clinic for Boys and Girls

By Beacon Staff

The Flathead Valley Hockey Association invites boys and girls ages 4 to 10 years old to Woodland Ice Center in Kalispell on Saturday, Nov. 2 for free ice hockey clinics. The event is from 1 to 3 p.m. and will help youngsters experience ice hockey for the first time and learn the basics of the sport in a fun, safe environment.

“Try Hockey For Free Day” is part of Come Play Hockey Month. This program, designed to provide youth hockey associations a national platform to introduce new kids to the sport, is a joint effort between USA Hockey, the National Hockey League, and NHL member clubs. With Total Hockey and Liberty Mutual Responsible Sports, the official sponsors of Try Hockey For Free Day, USA Hockey has 500 locations offering kids between the ages of 4 and 10 years old this unique opportunity.

“We look forward to introducing new families to our sport,” said Kim Morisaki, president of FVHA. “To help keep costs reasonable for parents, we’ve incorporated programs to provide first-year players with part of the required equipment for the season.”

Any child who participates in the Woodland Park event and joins the team will get a free stick.
