DALLAS STARS TO PARTICIPATE IN TRY HOCKEY FOR FREE DAY
Dr Pepper StarCenters in Euless, Farmers Branch and McKinney to offer a free, four-week learn to play hockey program
FRISCO, Texas - This Saturday November 3, the Dallas Stars, in conjunction with USA Hockey and the National Hockey League, will participate in Try Hockey for Free Day at the Dr Pepper StarCenters in Euless, Farmers Branch and McKinney.
Try Hockey For Free Day will be the first day of a four-week initiative by the Dr Pepper StarCenter's Kids First program, which provides free hockey instruction and equipment to children ages 4-8 at the McKinney, Euless and Farmers Branch locations.
"Since moving to Dallas nearly 20 years ago, the Stars have made it an organizational priority to expose children in the Metroplex to the game of hockey," said Dallas Stars President Jim Lites. "We believe that if kids try hockey just once, they will become lifelong participants and fans of the sport. We are proud to support these initiatives and others that help to grow the game."
Try Hockey For Free Day is part of Come Play Hockey Month. The 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 NHL, and its member clubs. USA Hockey has nearly 500 locations, offering boys and girls this unique opportunity to be introduced to the game of hockey.
Spots are going fast with a few openings still available at Euless and Farmers Branch. Those wishing to sign up for the program can do so by clicking on the link below and filling out the form, or by signing up in person at each Dr Pepper StarCenter:
