The Ed Snider Youth Hockey Foundation (ESYHF), created by Philadelphia Flyers founder Ed Snider, as a personal commitment to teach children important life lessons, is offering Philadelphia students the chance to participate in free hockey camps throughout the summer. The program, which utilizes ice hockey to bring inner city children together, stresses the importance of education, teamwork and character development.
In a new initiative, ESYHF is excited to host a series of week-long day camps in June, July and August to help further develop ice hockey skills during the summer months. Full equipment, ice time, experienced coaching, lunch and snacks will be provided to all players at no cost. No experience is necessary and all new players are encouraged to participate.
Those wishing to participate can find more information at www.esyhf.org
or contact ESYHF directly at 215-952-5271 or 215-618-0055.
The mission of the Ed Snider Youth Hockey Foundation is to impact the lives of underserved youth in Philadelphia by developing programs that incorporate on-ice and off-ice activities, stressing citizenship, academics and life skills. The programs are provided to boys and girls who otherwise would not have opportunities to enjoy ice hockey. The Foundation provides equipment, ice time, and experienced coaching at no cost.
