This is really cool. My sons did this a couple of years ago and loved it. I will probably sign my daughter up for this one if she shows an interest as she is now old enough.
The Nashville Predators have introduced Get Out And Learn! (G.O.A.L!), a FREE on-ice youth hockey program, in association with Centennial Sportsplex and A-Game Sportsplex as part of the Predators commitment to the development of youth hockey.
G.O.A.L! has been created to offer youngsters the opportunity to experience the excitement of hockey without the cost of purchasing equipment. Designed for boys and girls ages 4 to 8 years old with no prior hockey or skating experience, this free four-week ice hockey program will introduce the exciting sport of hockey to kids while teaching life experiences of teamwork, sportsmanship and self-confidence as a child develops through athletic participation.
Participants of G.O.A.L! will receive on-ice instruction by USA Hockey certified coaches, complimentary hockey equipment, stick and skates to check-out during the 4-week program, official G.O.A.L! hockey jersey to keep as a souvenir, graduation certificate signed by Predators Head Coach Barry Trotz, progression sheet from local rink and much more!
Registration will begin on December 29 at 9:00 a.m. (Registration form will be posted at the above link at 9:00 a.m. on December 29. Online is the only way to register). Dates for the lessons are Wednesdays, January 12, 19, 26 and February 2 from 5:40-6:30 p.m. The location is A-Game Sportsplex, 215 Gothic Court, Franklin, TN 37067.
Just fyi, this is the ice rink in Franklin. They keep changing the name but it is the only one there.
