Hockey Weekend Across America

by Colorado Avalanche / Colorado Avalanche

The eighth annual Hockey Weekend Across America, presented by CCM, will be celebrated across the United State this weekend, Feb. 20-22.

The national event is a three-day celebration of the sport of hockey at every level.

"Hockey Weekend Across America is something the hockey community looks forward to each year," said USA Hockey executive director Dave Ogrean. "From grassroots programs across the country to the National Hockey League and every level in between, this weekend is about celebrating all the wonderful things about our sport and also giving new people a chance to try our game, whether it be on the ice as a player or as a fan attending a game."

Each day of the weekend has a theme to it with "Wear Your Favorite Jersey Day" on Friday, Feb. 20; "Try Hockey Day," sponsored by the NHL, on Saturday, Feb. 21, with hundreds of programs across the United States hosting 'Try Hockey For Free' clinics; and "Celebrate Local Hockey Heroes," on Sunday, Feb. 22.

The Colorado Avalanche will help support area rinks on "Try Hockey Day," by giving children between the ages of 4 and 9 the chance to try youth hockey free of charge. Nine Colorado rinks will hold free clinic this weekend; in Colorado Springs, Durango, Eagle, Glenwood Springs, Gunnison, Littleton, Monument, Pueblo and Superior.

Avalanche mascot Bernie will be at Boulder Valley Ice in Superior on Saturday morning while members of the Ice Girls will be at Edge Ice in Littleton for its clinic on Sunday afternoon.

Equipment will be provided for children attending the 'Try Hockey' clinics and no experience is required to participate. More information on 'Try Hockey' clinics, including registration and a list of all participating ice rinks can be found at www.TryHockeyForFree.com.
