Monsters Announce 2019 Summer Street Hockey Series
CLEVELAND - The Cleveland Monsters announced Thursday the Monsters 2019 Summer Street Hockey Series will be held throughout June and July featuring five street hockey events in Northeast Ohio leading up to the team's annual on-ice Summer Youth Hockey Clinic in early August. The Summer Street Hockey Series will be offered at four of the 2019 Monsters-Certified Learn to Play Program rinks culminating with the final event at Nautica Entertainment Complex in the Flats on Saturday, July 27th.
Summer Street Hockey Series:
Open to all children ages 5-14 regardless of their hockey experience, participants can enroll with just a $5 donation to the Monsters Community Fund and will receive USA Hockey-certified instruction in the fundamentals of stick-handling, shooting, and passing, as well as a Monsters Grow the Game T-Shirt. Participants will also receive a complimentary ticket to a 2019-20 Monsters game.
Each street hockey event will feature the Monsters' 'Skee-Puck' interactive game, temporary tattoos, a Monsters photo station and Monsters fan giveaways, along with special appearances from Sully and the Monsters Game Entertainment Teams. Representatives from local youth hockey organizations will also be on-hand to register children for Learn To Play programs this fall.
Each street hockey clinic has limited spots available and participating children may only partake in one of the first four clinics. The final event at Nautica Entertainment Complex will be open to all regardless of attendance at previous Grow the Game events. Players joining the clinics must wear closed-toed shoes and use the equipment provided by the Monsters. Parents can register their child starting today at www.clevelandmonsters.com/growthegame with time slots filled on a first come, first served basis.
