ABOUT STICK 'N PUCK
For those who are unfamiliar with Stick 'n Puck, the event is open ice time for hockey and ringette players - whether they're part of a club or just love the game. Children and teens can lace up the skates, put on gloves and a helmet, grab a stick and puck and hit the rink for some informal practice time. Youth can brush up on their skating, passing or stick handling skills and take shots on the open nets. Sometimes, if goalies show up with their equipment, kids can also try to brush up on their scoring techniques.
