The Herb Brooks Foundation welcomed over 250 students who walked to the Super Rink from Centerview Elementary located on the NSC campus to skate for gym class. Each 3rd and 4th grade student had the opportunity to skate four times over the course of two weeks. There were four groups of kids who came throughout the day.
The Herb Brooks Foundation was able to provide helmets, skates and sticks for the kids . This unique opportunity helped students keep moving and to learn skating techniques. It was the first time on the ice for many kids which was a frustrating but rewarding skill for them.
The students had a blast and it was fun to see the improvement and confidence levels rise after each session.
We are thankful for the great relationship shared between the Herb Brooks Foundation, the National Sports Center, the Super Rink and Centerview Elementary. We are looking forward to giving students this opportunity in the years coming.
