Try Hockey For Free Day Coming to Sun Prairie Ice Arena Feb. 20.

The Sun Prairie Youth Hockey Association (SPYHA) invites boys and girls to Sun Prairie Ice Arena (located at 838 Grove St., Sun Prairie) on Saturday, Feb. 20 for a Try Hockey For Free clinic as part of Hockey Weekend Across America.   Local youth, ages 4 to 9, are encouraged to experience ice hockey for the first time and learn the basic skills in a fun, safe environment.   SPYHA is sponsoring two sessions: one beginning at 11:30 am and the other beginning at 2:30 pm. 

“We look forward to welcoming families to try our great sport of ice hockey” said SPYHA President Betsy McCrary. “Our goal is for these families to enjoy watching their kids learn new skills with big smiles on their faces.”

USA Hockey's Try Hockey program, with the support of the National Hockey League and NHL member clubs, among others, is designed to provide youth hockey associations a national platform to introduce new kids to the sport. In addition to presenting sponsor Kraft Heinz, Total Hockey and Liberty Mutual Insurance are official sponsors of Try Hockey For Free Days. USA Hockey has close to 300 locations offering this unique opportunity to kids nationwide.

Prairie Athletic Club Survey Regarding Off-Ice Conditioning Program

Attention SPYHA members:

One long term goal of Sun Prairie Ice Arena is to have a hockey training facility housed in the rink. Due to space and finances, this is not feasible at this time. SP Ice is presently in discussion with Prairie Athletic Club to try to develop an off-site dryland training program. If this training program is successful, the plan would be to move this training into the rink. Prairie Athletic Club has contacted some experienced hockey coaches/trainers to be involved with this training. Prairie Athletic Club and SP Ice promise to provide the best training available to your hockey players.

At this time Prairie Athletic Club would like you to complete their survey to provide thoughts and comments about what you would like to see in this off ice training facility. Please click on the link to access the survey. Thank you!
