Oyster Bay Town Councilman Lou Imbroto announces that a special New York Islanders ‘Learn to Play’ Hockey Clinic is returning to the Town of Oyster for children ages 5 – 9. Part of The Future Islanders Program, this ‘Learn to Play’ clinic introduces the game of hockey to young children and serves as a transition program for first-time players interested in house leagues.
“We are pleased to partner with the New York Islanders to offer this exciting clinic for children looking to learn the fundamentals of hockey in a fun environment,” said Councilman Imbroto. “This Future Islanders program, taught by former players and coaching staff from the New York Islanders organization, includes hands-on training skills and all necessary equipment in the early stages of learning hockey.”
Two sessions of the ‘Learn to Play’ clinic will be offered this winter. Residents can choose from a session at the Syosset-Woodbury Ice Rink on Tuesdays from 4:30-5:40PM or the Marjorie Post Park Ice Rink in Massapequa on Wednesdays at 5:45PM. The Syosset-Woodbury program runs from December 5 – January 30, and the Massapequa program runs from December 6 – January 31. With a registration price of $295, students receive full hockey equipment, including jersey, stick, gloves, helmet, shoulder pads, pants, shin guards, equipment bag and much more. Sessions will include special appearances by Isles alumni Arron Asham and Radek Martinek.
Registration is now open and space is limited. Visit newyorkislanders.com/learntoplay for additional information, or contact email@example.com or call (516) 501-6764.
