The New York Rangers Hockey Development Team will conduct an Intro to Hockey Clinic for kids in the Power Player Selects program.
The Power Players program continues to pride itself on six values: Commitment, Excellence, Fun, Respect, Responsibility and Teamwork. During the program, one of the six values is stressed by the Rangers’ Hockey Development instructors to help reinforce important life lessons that the children may have learned previously at home or in the classroom.
Three Garden of Dreams partner organizations participate in the Power Players program: Children’s Aid Society, Harlem Dowling and WHEDco. Each partner location has up to 25 “selects” from last year that have returned and will get the chance to test their skills on the ice!
