A few of the local clubs (Souderton, Pennridge, and North Penn) joined together recently to sponsor a 5 week Learn to Play Hockey program for students in grades 1-5. It was an opportunity to get more kids involved in the game of hockey. Between the 3 schools we were able to bring roughly 45 kids out each week and teach them some of the basic skills of ice hockey (skating, stickhandling, passing, and shooting). The hope is that these players become interested in the game and eventually join our Middle School programs across the league. If you are interested in more information about this program, please contact Kevin Vaitis or Ken Haas for the details. We would encourage all of our local schools to look to build upon what a few schools have started.
We had a special guest come out and help us the one night, Flyers Ambassador, Bob Kelly!
