DCF Partnership with South Wales Police
Posted on 19 June 2012
It has been a been a busy week within the Devils Community Foundation! On Saturday the Devils Community Foundation was at the Pentwyn Leisure Centre for a South Wales Police Community Day raising awareness of ice hockey and the activities of the Cardiff Devils during the summer months. Current Cardiff Devils U10’s players McKenzie Parsons and Morgan Parsons came along to assist other local youngsters enjoy the Cardiff Devils Interactive Shooting Cage and encourage them to take up the sport at a young age.
Head of the Devils Community Foundation Brent Pope is keen to see young people start the sport at a younger age, “today’s youth is tomorrow’s future and the more young people we can expose to the sport of ice hockey in the Cardiff community the stronger our future will become. I started the sport at 4 years of age and then stopped playing for a year at 5 years of age only to return to the sport at the age of 6 as a goaltender. Everyone’s story is different and how they start is different but the more 4, 5 and 6 year olds we can get playing our sport the brighter our future will become.”
If you have or know of a youngster under the age of 10 that would like to play ice hockey bring them along to our Wednesday session from 6.15-7.15 to get them started this week. The DCF is now operating an U8’s training session on Wednesday evenings at the Cardiff Bay Ice Arena on a Pay as you Play basis (for non club members) from 6.15-7.15 and we will accept all new interest at the age of 8 and 9 to start them on their hockey playing career today. See you there to enjoy the fun!
