DETROIT – The Red Wings today announced the details for the inaugural Street Hockey Summer Tour, presented by Meijer. Launching this July, the Red Wings will travel throughout the state of Michigan and take over the parking lots of 10 different Meijer locations to host free street hockey clinics for children ages 7-12.
The tour is open to children of all skill levels and hockey experiences. The first hour of each session will feature a one-hour clinic, followed by a 30-minute pick-up street hockey game. The clinics will be instructed by Detroit Red Wings representatives and local hockey players and coaches.
