WEST BABYLON, NY: On Saturday, April 9th, Presiding Officer of the Suffolk County Legislature Kevin J. McCaffrey will join Suffolk County Sheriff Errol Toulon and Town of Babylon Councilman Terence McSweeney, as well as the New York Rangers, to bring the Junior Ranger "Break the Ice" Program to the Town of Babylon!
The program offers a chance for kids to try hockey for the first time and go home with new equipment to keep playing! This year's program will have multiple dates at locations in Deer Park and West Babylon. Please see the links below and the flyer for more information on how to register depending on location.
Following the April 9th event, the West Babylon Community Youth Center will host a Street Hockey Season sponsored by the New York Rangers and Benjamin Moore for kids ages 5-10 across the tri-state area! Kids will have the opportunity to put a stick in their hands and learn the basics of the game without the challenges of on-ice concerns. The recreational program offers players the ability to quickly learn the basics and enjoy weekly game play. Participants in the 10 week program will receive professional instruction from Rangers Alumni and their Hockey Development Team, as well as a Junior Rangers Stick and T-Shirt. The program will build a foundation of skills that will allow each child to enjoy the game to the best of his or her ability. By focusing on core skills and fundamentals, kids will develop the skills needed to succeed and have fun. Players should wear athletic attire and proper sneakers for the program. Games are run on ball hockey court spaces and therefore will not require ice skates or rollerblades to participate.
