The Coyotes continue to step up all around the Valley to grow the game of hockey. They were a big help to us, providing us with equipment and a lot of elbow grease to get our program off the ground.
The Coyotes youth hockey and fan development group are first rate, and they’re riding all around Arizona in the Coyotes truck handing out hockey equipment to schools. But, they don’t stop there.
Once the sticks and nets and the rest of the equipment is out of the boxes, the Coyotes stick around and run a clinic for the kids to teach them the basics of hockey. Hopefully, after they leave, the excitement they’ve generated sticks around and hockey becomes a part of the physical education and recreation programs in the schools.
This is obviously a long term plan being implemented full force by the Coyotes. Watch the video and you’ll see.
If you’re involved with a school or recreation program in Arizona and you think a program like this would be good for your kids, get hold of the Coyotes Community Relations department and they’ll hook you up.
