Try Hockey for Free Feb. 25

Try Hockey for Free

Rochester Youth Hockey invites boys and girls to Bill Gray’s Regional Iceplex on Saturday, Feb. 25th for a Try Hockey For Free clinic as part of Hockey Week Across America. Starting at 1:45 PM, local youth, ages 4 to 9, are encouraged to experience ice hockey for the first time and learn the basic skills in a fun, safe environment.  We recommend arrival 15 to 30 minutes prior to ice time so your future player is ready to go.

“We look forward to welcoming families to Bill Gray’s to try our great sport of ice hockey” said RYH Publicity Director Tom Mayo. “Our goal is for these families to enjoy watching their kids learn new skills with big smiles on their faces.”

USA Hockey's Try Hockey program, with the support of the National Hockey League and NHL member clubs, among others, is designed to provide youth hockey associations with a national platform to introduce new kids to the sport. Total Hockey and Liberty Mutual Insurance are official sponsors of Try Hockey For Free Days. USA Hockey has close to 300 locations offering this unique opportunity to kids nationwide.

To register for this Try Hockey For Free event, please visit http://tryhockeyforfree.com/register.php?e=7291.

Bill Gray’s Regional Iceplex is located at 2700 Brighton Henrietta Town Line Rd, Rochester, NY 14623, behind Monroe Community College.

RYH and Grizzlies

Today, two of Rochester’s most historic youth hockey organizations, Rochester Youth Hockey and Rochester Grizzlies, are pleased to announce their intention to form a coalition.

The coalition will provide for a unified player development platform, including USA Hockey Tier 1 and Tier 2 tournament bound teams for boys and girls at all age levels. Non-tournament bound travel teams and Empire Conference house teams will continue to be supported.

The coalition’s hockey leadership group will bring a wealth of knowledge and experience in the industry and the Rochester community, and the coalition promises to provide the most comprehensive and competitive hockey option available in the area. Further information, including members of the coalition’s hockey leadership group, coaches, the try out schedule, and more specifics on player development and game competition planning, will be reviewed with the hockey community in an informational session on or before February 15, 2017.

Members of the proposed coalition have expressed excitement at the prospect of this arrangement and what it means for Rochester hockey, and look forward to furthering hockey excellence in our area.
