• Grow Hockey Movement and Terrace Sports Offer Free Saturday Youth Ball Hockey Clinics

    Inviting all girls and boys ages 4 to 15 to come enjoy free ball hockey in Temple Terrace

    A series of free youth ball hockey learn-to-play clinics are being held on upcoming Saturday afternoons through June at Terrace Sports roller skating rink at 5311 East Busch Boulevard in Temple Terrace to help create the first-ever recreational leagues for boys and girls ages 15 and under in downtown Tampa.

    All girls and boys ages 4 to 15 are invited to attend the free learn-to-play clinics being held at Terrace Sports from 2:30 to 4 p.m. Saturdays on these dates: April 22; May 13; June 10; and June 24, 2017.

    The free clinics are hosted by the volunteer nonprofit Grow Hockey Movement, Inc., and provide a fun way to introduce first-time youth players to the sport. Ball hockey equipment including sticks and balls will be provided to players participating in the free clinics, which are led by experienced teachers.

    The ultimate goal of the Grow Hockey Movement Ball Hockey Clinics is to create the first recreational youth 15-and-under ball hockey league at Terrace Sports. It will be the first Grow Hockey Movement sponsored 10-week recreational season when the league officially begins this summer following the free Saturday clinics.

    Complete signup details for both the Ball Hockey Clinics and the upcoming league can be found at www.growhockey.org and www.tampaihl.com. Grow Hockey Movement invites all girls and boys ages 4 to 15 to come and be part of the new youth sports sensation that is sweeping Tampa Bay.

    Grow Hockey Movement, Inc., an IRS 501(c)3 tax-exempt nonprofit C-Corp, has as its mission the growth and continuing support of off-ice ball and roller hockey community and scholastic programs and leagues in the Tampa Bay area so that all boys and girls starting at age 4 have an opportunity to play the sport, regardless of ability to pay. Scholarships will be available through Grow Hockey Movement for eligible players whose family can’t afford the $100 per player cost of the recreational Ball Hockey League.
