Hockey Weekend Across America

The seventh annual Hockey Weekend Across America, presented by CCM, will be celebrated across the United State this weekend, Feb. 28-March 2.

The national event is a three-day celebration of the sport of hockey at every level.

"Hockey Weekend Across America is one of the marquee events on the calendar each year," executive director of USA Hockey Dave Ogrean said. "This year will be unique as we'll celebrate Hockey Weekend Across America the weekend immediately following the conclusion of the Olympic Winter Games."

Each day of the weekend has a theme to it with "Wear Your Favorite Jersey Day" on Friday, Feb. 28; "Try Hockey Day," sponsored by the NHL, on Saturday, March 1, with over 400 programs across the United States hosting 'Try Hockey For Free' clinics; and "Celebrate Local Hockey Heroes," on Sunday, March 2.

The Colorado Avalanche will help support area rinks on "Try Hockey Day," by giving children between the ages of 4 and 9 the chance to try youth hockey free of charge. The seven Colorado rinks that will have free clinic are in Arvada, Colorado Springs, Grand Junction, Glenwood Springs, Littleton, Monument and Pueblo.

Equipment will be provided for children attending the 'Try Hockey' clinics and no experience is required to participate. More information on 'Try Hockey' clinics, including registration and a list of all participating ice rinks can be found at
