On Saturday, November 10, more than 400 local hockey programs and USA Hockey are inviting kids to try youth hockey for free as part of Hockey Weekend Across America.
Ice rinks across the country are participating. All of the participating programs have a limited amount of equipment, so registration is required.
Here in Wichita, the Wichita Ice Center is participating.
Their event is for kids ages 4-9 years old with no previous skating or hockey experience. The Ice Center says its top coaches will be on the ice to assist your child in learning the basics. All equipment will be available to borrow, but there are limited supplies of equipment, so you do need to register.
