In conjunction with our initiative to develop youth hockey in Middle Tennessee, we are excited to report a successful Hockey Rules Summerfest 2017 tour!
Hockey Rules Summerfest tour encompassed several counties, including Davidson, Rutherford, Sumner and Williamson, in an effort to visit 38 summer camps and more than 2,300 children.
Hockey Rules takes the game of hockey into summer camps across the community and teaches youth the basics of the game, along with Predators' history and team facts. Basics such as how to hold a stick, handling the puck and shooting are all developed before scrimmaging and teaching the strategy of the game.
We look forward to continuing the development of youth hockey by reaching out to an increasing amount of summer camps and encouraging the youth of Middle Tennessee excited about the great game of hockey! In the past four years, numbers have more than doubled in respect to the amount of camps visited, as well as the amount of children reached.
