Wolf Pack's Summer "Hockey in the Streets" Faces off June 27Jun 11, 2018
Spectra, operators of the XL Center and the Wolf Pack, today announced that the Wolf Pack’s “Hockey in the Streets” program will kick off a schedule of seven summer dates Wednesday, June 27.
Hockey in the Streets involves Wolf Pack staff and the Wolf Pack’s iconic mascot, Sonar, playing outdoor ball hockey with groups of Connecticut boys and girls, many of whom will be experiencing the excitement, healthy competition and enjoyable exercise of the game of hockey for the first time. The Wolf Pack provides goal nets, balls and sticks, plus a healthy measure of positive encouragement, for the asphalt action.
The Wolf Pack currently has seven Hockey in the Streets appearances scheduled, with the first being at the Channel 3 Kids Camp in Andover, CT. Campers will be in Hockey in the Streets Action June 27, from 1:00-4:00 PM. Channel 3 Kids Camp provides fun year-round opportunities to children of all abilities, families, and communities through educational and recreational programs that promote diversity, acceptance and environmental appreciation, and is located at 73 Times Farm Rd. in Andover.
Then, Hockey in the Streets returns to Camp Courant in Farmington, CT, where it has become a fixture in recent years, for three straight Thursdays, July 5, July 12 and July 19. Camp Courant, the largest free summer day camp in the nation, serves over 1,000 of Hartford’s children, ages 5-12, for six weeks each summer. Each of the Hockey in the Streets sessions at Camp Courant will run from 10:00 AM-1:00 PM.
Also, Hockey in the Streets will travel to the Connecticut National Guard's Army Aviation Support Facility in Windsor Locks, CT Wednesday, July 18. Children of CT National Guard personnel will be in Hockey in the Streets action from 10:00 AM-1:00 PM, and the AASF is located at 155 Light Lane, Windsor Locks, CT.
On Saturday, August 4, Hockey in the Streets will visit the Bear Creek Campground at Lake Compounce in Bristol, CT (186 Enterprise Dr.), from 12 noon to 3:00 PM, and will be meeting more CT National Guard family youngsters Wednesday, August 22. That is at the CT National Guard Armory in Southington, CT (590 Woodruff St.), where Hockey in the Streets will be in action from 10:00 AM-1:00 PM.
