Hurricanes host free hockey clinic for girls at PNC Arena

RALEIGH (WTVD) -- As part of World Girls' Ice Hockey Weekend, The Carolina Hurricanes will host a free clinic for girls ages 4-14 on Sunday, Oct. 11 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at PNC Arena.

Shane Willis, Youth and Amateur Hockey Coordinator for the Hurricanes says even if you don't know how to ice skate, this is an event girls should attend to try hockey.

"We're going to have plenty of help on hand," said Willis. "We'll have some women's leagues in the area that are going to come out and help. So, if you don't know how to skate, I'll be on the ice. USA Hockey is bringing in 4 or 5 people from their department to help. We'll be holding hands out there and giving out sticks to show them the basics to just get them started and really get them interested."

You can register online for the clinic or on site before the event begins beginning at 12:15 p.m.

Willis says participants are asked to bring gloves either winter or hockey gloves as well as a helmet.

"It can be a bike helmet, their brother's baseball helmet, whatever they have to wear. Just a helmet on the ice and we'll have skates and sticks for them to use in the clinic," Willis said.
