This Saturday USA Hockey is giving kids the chance to check out the sport of hockey with Try Hockey For Free day.

According to USA Hockey,  Kids aged 4 to 9 can come out to a participating rink and try out hockey for free.

Two rinks in the area are participating once again this year, Wings West in Kalamazoo and The Rink in Battle Creek.

The Wings West free event will be on Saturday from 11:15 a.m. to 12:15 p.m.   The Rink event will be from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m.  Both rinks will have a limited amount of equipment to borrow if needed.

Those who attend are encouraged to register.   No previous skating or hockey experience is necessary.
