Vancouver, BC – The Vancouver Canucks and BC Hockey are proud to announce that the Canucks First Strides program, presented by Chevrolet, will be hosted at Rogers Arena Friday, March 15th at 5:00 p.m.
The First Strides program is open to 72 registered BC Hockey initiation and novice players aged six to eight for both boys and girls. The evening will help participants develop fundamental hockey skills along with learning the important concepts of fair play, fitness, safety, teamwork and employing a positive attitude.
“The Canucks First Strides Initiation Program is an excellent complement to our Chevrolet Safe & Fun Hockey program” said Peter Cornu, National Sponsorship Manager for General Motors. “We feel it is important to talk to parents, coaches and players about the values of respect and responsibility in the game of hockey, as well as enhancing the fun aspects of the game.”
