The Peterborough Petes are excited to announce a partnership with RBC and their “Play Hockey Initiative” that will see the Petes host six Open Practices and Community Skates in local communities, partnering with the local Minor Hockey organizations.
The program will see the Petes host an open practice followed by a community skate with the local minor hockey organization. The Local organization will hold an equipment drive and distribute the equipment to families within their organization in need of assistance. Representatives from RBC will hand out free hot chocolate to the children participating in the community skate.
The first of six Petes/RBC Open Practices and Community Skates will take place at the Douro Community Centre on Monday September 24th. The Petes will practice from 5-6pm followed by the community skate from 6-7pm where Petes players will sign autographs for all children in attendance.
