Volunteers Run Learn to Skate and Play Hockey Program

Every Sunday afternoon for 13 weeks, December through March, Coach Rock (Shaker-Colonie Hockey Head Hockey Coach) runs a free learn to skate and learn to play hockey program for the young kids of the Arbor Hill Community.

The 3-5:30 p.m. program is run under the direction of Albany Mayor Kathy Sheehan and The City of Albany Recreation Department Commissioner Jonathan Jones. The program is held at the Swinburne Ice Arena a nostalgic landmark in Albany that is an outdoor rink with a roof.

The program is only possible because of the volunteers that give up Sunday afternoon to introduce these young people to skating and hockey.
