It won’t be long before spring is here. But just before Old Man Winter calls it a day, your kids will have one last chance to try out the ultimate winter team sport: hockey.
On Feb. 25, USA Hockey and 300 local associations across the country are hosting a “Try Hockey for Free Day!” Kids ages 4 to 9 can strap on the blades and drop the puck at no cost.
Each location will have a limited amount of equipment on hand. To find a participating location and register, check out the USA Hockey website.
