SATURDAY, 11/2: GMHS, MEH Hockey Clubs Promote “Try Hockey for Free Day”

Saturday November 2 is “Try Hockey for Free Day” in Virginia, when kids ages 4-9 can put on the pads and try their hand at ice hockey at no cost.  The George Mason High School and Mary Ellen Henderson Middle School Hockey Clubs are joining other area hockey programs to promote the effort at Mt. Vernon Ice Rink, 2017 Belle View Boulevard in Alexandria at 3:15pm Saturday.

“This is a great way for kids to try ice hockey,” said Stan Fendley, coach of the GMHS club team.  “No equipment costs, no team fees – just gear up and chase the puck around.  It’s a lot of fun.”

Certified coaches will be on hand to teach the basics, Fendley said.
