By SUBURBAN LIFE MEDIA
LA GRANGE PARK – Blackhawks youth hockey staff headed to Forest Road School in La Grange Park on Dec. 20 to host two one-hour goal clinics for students.
The school got to keep the equipment used in the clinic, including Blackhawks street hockey sticks, hockey balls and two nets.
Formerly StreetHawks, Get Out and Learn (GOAL) introduces hockey at the grassroots level to kids who may not otherwise have the opportunity to try hockey. The program brings hockey to schools, community centers and other places where kids can play in safe, structured environments.
To make the game more accessible, the Blackhawks provide equipment, tips on how to grow the program and instruction from youth hockey coaches.
