New York Rangers Youth Street Hockey presented by Coca-Cola "Get the Ball Rolling" kicked off on October 28th in Union Square Park. This season marks the fifth year of the program which has reached over 7,500 children in the tri-state area since its inception. This year, the program hopes to reach another 3,000 children bringing the total to more than 10,000 kids in 5 years.
There is a common goal amongst many youth hockey players in the tri-state area. That goal is to make the Pee Wee Rangers team the year of your eligibility. As a youth player, there is no greater honor than to represent the team you have grown up idolizing and possibly one day hope to play for.
The New York Rangers and USA Hockey are partnering up once again to offer kids ages 4-10 years old the opportunity to Try Hockey For Free. Beginner skaters and players are encouraged to Go Skate! by signing up for one of our many sessions around the Tri-State area. Free rental skates, loaner equipment, and instruction will be provided to each participant as well as an exclusive New York Rangers hockey stick souvenir.
Sports stories and accomplishments have often been the focus of movies and books since the inception of competition. From the 1980 “Miracle” team to the Marshall University victory against Xavier a year after tragedy struck their school, using sports as a form of inspiration is a common theme in today’s culture. However, there are some stories that have yet to be told on such a high level that are cause for daily inspiration and motivation.
One such story is the resilient, powerful, and motivated participants of sled hockey. The sport of sled hockey was created in the early 1960’s in Stockholm, Sweden at a rehabilitation center. Sled Hockey allows youth and adults with physical disabilities the opportunity to play ice hockey, and was officially declared a Paralympic medal sport during the Lillehammer Games in 1994.
FOXBORO, MA (August 3, 2014) – It’s never easy to win a championship.
Despite tearing through the first four games of the Chowder Cup tournament, scoring 25 goals and yielding just one, the New York PeeWee Rangers had to summon up a substantial amount of intestinal fortitude to prevail over a gritty Hockey Essentials Blue team in the final round of the 2014 Chowder Cup.
Fortunately there was no lack of that special quality, as blue-chip goaltender Spencer Knight led the Rangers over a determined foe to win 2-1 and skate off with the Chowder Cup championship in the 2001 birth-year division.
