The free Children’s Street Hockey Clinic will begin at 1:45pm on Sunday, November 10th as well. Due to the overwhelming popularity of the children’s clinics, the Washington Capitals are adding a second clinic for 8-14 year olds at 3:00pm. Participants who have already registered will be notified directly by the Washington Capitals. All participants will receive a free street hockey stick. No skates are allowed for this clinic, tennis shoes only. For details and to register for the free clinic visit https://washcaps.formstack.com/forms/street_hockey_clinic_series.

Details about the new clinic signups will be made available on fxbghockey.com. For questions and concerns regarding the clinics please email youthhockey@washcaps.com.

Skaters are encouraged to bring inline skates and give the rink a try after the clinics are finished.

The rink was constructed in Dixon Park as a new build that includes a custom Riley Manufactured board system and a NOVA Play II flooring surface featuring the Capitals logo. The rink also features a Daktronics scoreboard with the Capitals logo. The rink has been built as a partnership between the Washington Capitals and the City of Fredericksburg, with generous support from the new Fredanthropist program and the Fredericksburg Youth Roller Hockey organization. In addition to supporting the new rink construction, the Washington Capitals are providing hockey equipment and teacher curriculum to all four City schools’ physical education departments.
