The Brantford Community Hockey League in partnership with Take A Shot Sports teamed up to offer a free, learn-to-play hockey program for youth aged 8-12 years and new to the game of hockey. All necessary equipment was provided and the sessions ran 2 hours per week for 10 weeks.
The first session concluded with a fun game where the participants were skating from end-to-end, moving the puck and sporting some big smiles.
Congratulations to the participants and all those involved in creating a fabulous introduction to the game of hockey!
