Looking for something new and exciting for your kids this summer? Kids can Try Hockey For Free with the Columbus Blue Jackets Get Out And Learn! Program (GOAL!).
The Blue Jackets GOAL! program powered by Performance Columbus is designed for boys and girls, ages 5-8, with no prior hockey or skating experience to try hockey for free. These on-ice clinics will introduce the exciting sport of hockey in a fun, safe environment. No equipment necessary. Through GOAL!, the Blue Jackets aim to remove barriers of entry to the sport and offer children the opportunity to experience the excitement of hockey without the time commitment or cost of purchasing equipment.
During each one-hour session, GOAL! teaches the basic skills of skating and hockey including stickhandling, passing and shooting. Participants will receive on-ice instruction by USA Hockey certified coaches, complimentary skate rental, an ice hockey stick and a Blue Jackets GOAL! jersey to keep.
Participants are encouraged to bring a helmet from home (bike helmet is acceptable) along with a pair of winter or hockey gloves. A limited number of helmets and gloves will be available at each session. Hockey equipment is not required to participate.
Basic skating experience is recommended, but it is designed as a first experience with hockey for those who haven’t participated in a hockey program. Each session will be limited to the first 50 participants. Experienced skaters should check out the Blue Jackets Learn to Play Program, which provides free equipment along with 6 weeks of lessons.
