NOTES:

The clinic is an exclusive event for participants of the NHL’s Hockey is for Everyone initiative to experience ice hockey and improve upon basics of the game in a fun, safe environment. Led by Dave Smith, NHL Director of Fitness and Medical, participants will enhance their skills through NHL presentations during the on-ice drills and will be provided with valuable information about safety, goal-setting, nutrition, academic achievement and advice on what it takes to get to the next level.  The highlight of each clinic will be a short scrimmage for participants to experience their first hockey game. Willie O’Ree, a recent Order of Canada honoree for his work with youth hockey organizations, will lead a goal-setting discussion with the participants.

Hockey is for Everyone is a component of "The Biggest Assist Happens off the Ice," the NHL’s social responsibility program that builds on the League's long-standing tradition of addressing important social issues in North America and around the world.

Hockey is for Everyone provides support and unique programming to non-profit youth hockey organizations across North America that are committed to offering children of all backgrounds opportunities to play hockey.  The initiative is supported by NHL member clubs, players, NHL alumni, and fans. To date, Hockey is for Everyone has exposed close to 45,000 boys and girls to unique hockey experiences.
