Oceanside CA— Tri-City Inline Hockey League (TCIHL), a non-profit organization established over 20 years ago for the development of youth inline roller hockey in North County San Diego, will hold Roller Hockey Clinics, a series of free events for children and youth players between the ages of 5-17, 9:30 am to 1:00 pm on Saturdays, January 30, February 6, 13, and 20, 2016, at the Martin Luther King Jr. Park’s roller hockey rink located 4300 Mesa Drive in Oceanside.

The program consists of free skating lessons, fun games, drills, and scrimmage. Beginners and experienced players are welcome. Check-in begins at 9:30 am, rink activities will take place from 10:00 am to 11:30 am for beginner players, and from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm for experienced players. First time skaters will also be able to borrow used protective gear and equipment at the site for use on a first-come-first-served basis, and new size-adjustable inline roller skates and hockey sticks.

Tri-City Inline Hockey League’s President, Shane Nakamura, stated: “This year, we are celebrating the 24th year of TCIHL, the oldest sanctioned inline hockey league by USA Hockey in California. Our Hockey Clinics this winter are great opportunities for the kids in our community to come out and try hockey for the first time before the Spring Season begins and for experienced players to hone their skills.”
