Auckland Ice Hockey Association held it’s First Shift / Have a Go Day at Paradice Botany, Auckland on the 24th of November.
The rink was busy with more than 80 kids, ranging from 4 to 16 years old, taking part on the ice, trying ice hockey for the very first time.
With stations set up around the rink catering to different ages and skill levels, the kids were full of smiles and energy, even if some of them did fall over a few times!
The First Shift programme is designed to introduce new players to ice hockey in a fun and exciting way, with no prior skating or ice hockey experience required.
