The Los Angeles Kings, in conjunction with the City of Los Angeles Department of Recreation and Parks have announced dates for several free youth hockey clinics at LA KINGS DOWNTOWN ON ICE, located at Pershing Square in downtown Los Angeles (532 South Olive Street).
The free youth hockey clinics run Sundays from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. on Nov. 23, Dec. 7, 14, and 21 and Jan. 4 and 11. To sign up log onto www.laparks.org or call (213) 847-4970. Participation must be secured in advance to ensure hands-on guidance.
Both on and off the ice, as “Ambassadors of Goodwill” the LA Kings and their award-winning non-profit children’s charity, the Kings Care Foundation, serve the youth of Los Angeles through diverse educational, recreational and health related programs. Expanding awareness of the sport while igniting a passion for the game, the free youth hockey clinics are an integral part of the community outreach process that also encourages healthy exercise.
“When kids are given the chance to face challenges and test their abilities in sport, they learn more about themselves and gain a confidence that carries through to other aspects of their lives,” Kings former left-winger and current President of Business Operations Luc Robitaille said.
Celebrating its 11th holiday season, LA KINGS DOWNTOWN ON ICE is easily accessible by car, bus or rail. Public skating is only $6 with skate rental $2. Clinic sign ups and more info available at www.laparks.org or 213/ 847-4970.
