Red Wings’ ‘Street Hockey Summer Tour’ kicks off today at LCA

From WXYZ:

The Detroit Red Wings will once again travel throughout the state of Michigan starting in July to take over the parking lots of Meijer locations to host free street hockey clinics for children ages 7-12.

New to this year’s program, the first stop of the Street Hockey Summer Tour will be hosted at Little Caesars Arena in The District Detroit. On Tuesday, July 9, the event will take place in the Chevrolet Plaza, adjacent to the Meijer Southwest entry. The tour is open to children of all skill levels and hockey experience. The first hour of each session will feature a clinic, followed by a 30-minute pick-up street hockey game. The clinics will be instructed by Red Wings representatives and local hockey players and coaches.

The younger age group will start at 10:00 a.m. at each stop of the tour, while the older group will begin at 1:00 p.m. each day.
