The Predators' "Get Out And Learn!" (G.O.A.L!) free youth hockey program, presented by Delta Dental of Tennessee, wrapped up its fourth four-week session last month at Centennial Sportsplex in Nashville.

The next four-week session will begin in June 2007 at Southern Ice Arena. Online registration for the June session opened Wednesday, May 23rd at 9:00 a.m. Please visit the G.O.A.L! page for more information.

To date, approximately 200 participants have graduated Predators' G.O.A.L! presented by Delta Dental of Tennessee, learning the basics of skating and ice hockey. The most recent participants were treated to a guest appearance featuring team mascot GNASH.  While the focus was on skill development, Preds front office staff, Nashville Youth Hockey League instructors along with Pope John Paul II Knights hockey team coached the kids utilizing cross-ice stations working in small groups in a fun, rewarding atmosphere.

G.O.A.L! offers youngsters the opportunity to experience the excitement of hockey without the cost of purchasing equipment.  Designed for boys and girls ages 4 to 9 with no prior experience, this free four-week ice hockey program introduces the exciting sport of hockey while teaching life experiences of teamwork, sportsmanship and self-confidence. Full equipment, including skate rental, is provided by the Predators at no cost to the participant, making the program ideal for any family!

As the local NHL team, the Predators are dedicated to supporting the development of hockey at all levels. The Preds recognize the need for local skating facilities to be accessible for beginners to help grow the sport, starting at the younger ages.
