Canes to Celebrate Fort Bragg Ice Rink with Clinics
RALEIGH, NC – Doug Warf, Vice President of Marketing for the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes and Executive Director of the Kids ‘N Community Foundation, today announced that the team has formed a partnership with Defending the Blue Line (DTBL) and the Cape Fear Youth Hockey Association (CFYHA) to keep the Cleland Ice Rink on Fort Bragg open and active. Cleland Ice Rink, which primarily serves Fort Bragg military families and is the home of the CFYHA Jr. FireAntz, had been targeted for at least a temporary shutdown.

The Hurricanes were informed of the Cleland Ice Rink issue by DBTL a non-profit organization that helps subsidize hockey costs for military families. The team helped DTBL and CFYHA design a plan to keep the rink open, and made a $10,000 donation from its Kids ‘N Community Foundation.

The Hurricanes and DBTL will celebrate Cleland Ice Rink with a news conference and a special hockey clinic on Friday, June 14. Hurricanes captain Eric Staal will participate in the news conference and meet with youth hockey players off the ice before and after the clinics.

The CFYHA is a non-profit organization for individuals looking to learn to play or participate in travel hockey programs.
