As part of their initiative to promote healthy living and team work, the Barons have a portable floor hockey unit available to use in schools and community centers. The equipment can be used by groups as small as 20 kids to as many as 80. The hockey lesson teaches the participants about healthy living, being active, staying in school and working as a team.
