Special event at Intrepid on Saturday

The New York Rangers Youth Street Hockey program, presented by Coca-Cola Live Positively, is celebrating its second season of promoting youth fitness in the community with an all-day tournament at the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum.

During the year, the Rangers, NYC Department of Parks & Recreation, Boys & Girls Clubs and Coca-Cola, continued the success of last season’s free indoor hockey program by providing clinics for youth in New York City aimed to advocate the importance of living an active and healthy lifestyle.

Throughout the program more than 1,500 area children were able to get into the action and learn new hockey skills. The program will culminate this weekend with a free event on April 28th from 10AM-5PM featuring a street hockey tournament, interactive clinics and activities for the whole family.

New York Rangers greats, Nick Fotiu, Brian Mullen, Ron Greschner and Stephane Matteau will host the free outdoor event and legend Rod Gilbert will participate in an opening ceremonial puck drop, along with representatives from Madison Square Garden and Coca-Cola. All attendees are encouraged to visit Exploreum Hall aboard the U.S.S. Intrepid, a fully interactive exhibition space, throughout the day.
