Take the First Stride
The Vancouver Canucks and BC Hockey are proud to announce the Canucks First Strides program, presented by Chevrolet, will be hosted at Rogers Arena on Friday, February 24, 2014 this year.
The Canucks First Strides program is open to 76 Registered BC initiation and novice hockey players. 72 players and 4 goaltenders between the ages of 6-8 will have the opportunity to participate in this fun filled day! These lucky boys and girls will focus on skill development on and off the ice. In addition, they will work on developing the concepts of fair play, fitness, safety, teamwork and employing a positive attitude.
The participants will get the chance to make friends and learn hockey skills at this fun filled day and have the opportunity to skate on the Rogers Arena – the same ice as their local heroes. Local minor hockey association coaches will work alongside qualified BC Hockey Course conductors to teach these young players the first strides in becoming a good person as well as an accomplished athlete.
Registration is open now and will be closing on February 17, 2014. The form is available at Canucks.com/FirstStrides.
