Youth get chance to learn hockey


The Whatcom County Amateur Hockey Association invites boys and girls ages 4 to 9 years old to The Bellingham Sportsplex at 11:30 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 2, for a free Try Hockey clinic, which will teach the basics of hockey in a safe environment.

Try Hockey For Free Day is part of Come Play Hockey Month. This 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 National Hockey League, and NHL member clubs.

Following the clinic will be a WCAHA Mites Play Hockey, a three week, six hour primer into hockey. Equipment and certified coaches will be provided.
