Skate Like a Girl Day, June 16

Skate Like a Girl Day in Detroit Lakes will be held Friday, June 16 at Kent Freeman Arena.

The Detroit Lakes Youth Hockey Association sponsors this introductory session for elementary and middle school girls interested in trying the sport of hockey.

Skates and equipment will be available during the one-time session from 6-8 p.m.

Members of the Laker girls hockey team and other area hockey players will be on hand to assist new skaters and coaches will be there to aid with fundamentals and the basics of hockey.

The program was created by a group of parents who have spearheaded the push to get more girls involved in the sport.

The event is open to the public, includes fun and refreshments off-ice, and is free of charge.
