Triboro Youth Hockey receives Cheever grant

Marlborough – Triboro Youth Hockey has announced that it has received the Mike Cheever Hockey Grant through the Boston Bruins foundation. The grant is awarded annually to Massachusetts youth hockey programs that develop innovative methods for growing ice hockey participation especially with youths. Alan Gulachenski, a board member of Triboro youth hockey, applied for this year's grant with the idea of being able to provide a low/no cost way for parents to introduce the game to their children. The funds provided by the grant will enable Triboro Youth Hockey to provide free instructional ice hockey games for new skaters who are interested in learning how to skate and play the game. Triboro has also worked with a local sporting goods retailer to provide a youth starter package of required hockey equipment for only $149.

The free program starts Sunday, Nov. 4, at 9 a.m. and occurs weekly for 12 weeks at the Navin Skating Rink in Marlborough. Triboro will be accepting registrations online at www.triboro.org for the first 50 players who are new to the game of hockey and who have birth dates from 2005 to 2007 and reside in the Triboro towns of Marlborough, Southborough and Westborough. Other requirements are that each player will have to register with USA hockey and will need protective gear as detailed on the Triboro website.
