Free Sled Hockey Event hosted by SAM
March 31, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
On Sunday, March 31, the Skating Association of Maine (SAM) will host the the region’s first ever “Try Sled Hockey for Free” event at the Camden National Bank Ice Vault in Hallowell from 10 a.m. – 12 p.m. The event will include complimentary equipment courtesy of USA Hockey for children ages 3-18. The New England Sled Warriors Ice hockey team and staff will provide instruction and education for all participants.
Date: Sunday, March 31
Time: 10 a.m. – 12 p.m.
Place: Camden National Bank Ice Vault, 203 Whitten Rd., Hallowell, ME
The event is made possible by a partnership with the Skating Association of Maine, USA Hockey and the New England Warriors. The goal of the free event is to promote “Hockey is For Everyone.” USA Hockey will ship all the equipment from their headquarters in Colorado to Maine to provide attendees the chance to try the sport. SAM volunteers and the New England Warriors team will be at the event to help those in wheelchairs and other physical challenges get in the sleds and learn how to use them. No previous experience is required. Food, refreshments and giveaways will be provided to all participants at no charge.
“We thought this would be a great way to give back to the community and help make the wonderful game of hockey available to all children regardless of the challenges that they may face in life,” said SAM Hockey Steering committee member Kevin Rousseau. “Our hope is that this is the start of something really wonderful in our area and that we will have a great turnout for the event,” added Rousseau.
