The New York Rangers will host a “Try Hockey for Free” event at the Andrew Stergiopoulous Ice Rink on Sunday, Nov. 15, to introduce the sport to children between the ages of 4 and 10 through free skating and hockey lessons. Rangers alumni will be on hand at the event to help teach the basics of the sport.
To all registrants, the Great Neck Park District will offer complimentary rental skates. Free loaner equipment and instruction will be offered by the New York Rangers Hockey Development Team. A free Rangers hockey stick will be given to all participants. “This is a wonderful opportunity for kids to get the chance to play the greatest game on Earth,” said Rangers legend Adam Graves.
The Andrew Stergiopoulos Ice Rink is one of many participating rinks in the tristate area. Everyone who would like to participate must sign up online at www.newyorkrangers.com/goskate.
