The St. Louis Blues are proud to announce the Street Blues initiative, a free ball hockey program aimed to get elementary and middle school-aged children interested in the game of hockey. This program offers area schools a PE class curriculum and after-school activity that is a fast-paced alternative to traditional PE class units.
- Blues staff members and a Blues celebrity will visit your school to deliver your school's equipment and teach street hockey during an assembly.
- Your school will receive a complete set of equipment for a full PE class.
- The equipment includes two nets, four sets of goalie equipment (pads and sticks), 36 sticks, one case of balls and one curriculum guide.
- PE teachers will be trained to provide accurate instruction to their PE class and after school participants.
- Each school will receive contact information for a Blues staff member that will be able to provide any additional information and answer any questions that might arise.
- Each student will receive their own Street Blues playbook containing basic street hockey terminology, rules, and practice drills that they can do on their own.
- The students will be exposed to one of the fastest growing sports in America.
- Each school that enrolls must have at least 100 children in grades 2-8.
- Schools must have ample space to play street hockey (i.e. gymnasium, parking lot, etc).
- Each school must commit to having the street hockey program as a week-long unit in their PE classes over two weeks.
