(SHREVEPORT, LA) – The Junior Mudbugs invites boys and girls ages four to nine years old to The CenturyLink Center on Saturday, November 2nd at 11am for a Try Hockey for Free clinic to experience ice hockey for the first time and learn the basics of the sport in a fun, safe environment. There will be a youth hockey tournament running in conjunction with this event and admission is free to the public.
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 9 years old this unique opportunity.
“We look forward to introducing new families to our sport,” said Kevin Cook, president of the Junior Mudbugs. “To help keep costs reasonable for parents, we’ve incorporated programs to provide first-year players with equipment for the season.
