Why G.O.A.L. Is Important
-- Hockey's Future Begins Now --
With the next registration period for the Nashville Predators’ G.O.A.L. program starting tomorrow at 9 am, I thought I would take a moment to explain the program for those who may not be familiar with it, and tell you exactly why you need to register your son or daughter!
G.O.A.L. stands for Get Out And Learn, and this program will teach boys and girls between the ages of 5-8 to skate and play hockey for free! The program is designed for complete beginners with no prior experience, and includes all the equipment and child needs to play.
Let me stop right there and reiterate that. All the gear. Free for the length of the program. You don’t have to spend money on equipment or ice time fearing that your child may abandon the game and leave you holding the bag financially. The Predators provide everything from stick to shin guards. So what have you got to lose? Nothing. Nothing at all. If you’re reading this, chances are good you’re already a hockey fan and your little one might be too. Now you can really bond over hockey!
One other thing I feel is of maximum importance to realize is the quick cycle of improvement that takes place over four weeks. I’ve literally seen kids who couldn’t move without holding onto anything and everything week one scooting around on their own by the program’s end. It’s really something special to watch a youngster take to the game the way I did, or Terry Crisp did, or Stu Grimson… you never know where the game will take you, but getting bitten by the bug is an amazing experience.
PS – NCAA Women’s Hockey scholarships are plentiful!
