Ice Hockey comes to the York Ice Factor
2:36pm 9th December 2010
In a bid to ensure that The Ice Factor has something for
everyone, organisers are launching ice hockey lessons for children to encourage exercise and to introduce a new sport that people may not have had the chance to explore.
The coaching lessons are three one-hour sessions at 8:30am starting 2nd January and children will be taught stick handling, passing and types of shots on goal.
At the end of the coaching, everyone will be given a certificate and an ice hockey shirt with their name on the back.
Maria Farrugia, organiser of The Ice Factor says:
"This year we wanted to try something different.
A lot of our ice marshal staff play hockey regularly so were very keen to show their talents and offer their coaching skills to York.
We are really excited about the interest that the course has already had.
Boys and girls are welcome."
To launch the lessons and showcase the fast paced game, The Ice Factor has organised a match this Sunday (12th December 2010) at 8:30am.
Ian Foreman, an organiser of The Ice Factor from Ice Aid said:
"I have been playing ice hockey for over 35 years and it is a great sport which is enjoyed by all ages.
I am really pleased that The Ice Factor is now giving children the chance to get a taste of this sport with the coaching lessons and I hope they too will go on to play for many years."
Ice Hockey lessons will take place on 2nd, 3rd and 9th of January at 8:30am.
