Pick-up Ball Hockey - This Saturday Afternoon!
Chaque semaine le samedi
I've been in Canada for some time but am back and more than ready to revitalize our Saturday afternoon ball hockey game! Come on out to our proper rink at Dutch Kills (a cute little neighborhood between Long Island City and Astoria) this Saturday at 1pm. The game is open to people of all abilities and experience, and all genders. Never played before? No problem. Want some tips beforehand? I'm always early and eager to go through the basics. All you need are the proper shoes (tennis, running, cross-trainers). I have extra sticks (left and right) if you don't have your own. I do recommend gloves of some sort, even if they are just a ratty old garden variety. This is a traditional street hockey game: just sneakers and sticks. No blades. And it's friendly. If you're testy in any way (as a fair few hockey players tend to be when on the rink), this isn't the game for you. Any testiness and I'll ensure one's exit stage right or left - whichever is closest... Please RSVP to let us know if you are coming, as we need a minimum of six people to show. Donations (recommended minimum of $5) would be appreciated for a non-profit program I run for youth-in-need, allowing them to play sports they otherwise wouldn't be able to afford. Thanks and hope to see you out there! -Greg
