The Methuen Fun Hockey League “Skate & Read” program begins with a party for Methuen boys and girls ages 4-16 at the Nevins Memorial Library on Jan. 7 from 6-7:30 p.m.
Registered players and interested families can meet the coaches and librarians, peruse this year’s reading lists for all three age groups, get a free pack of hockey cards, enter the free raffle for door prizes, and try the hockey-themed “Skate & Read” cake.
The league combines aspects of a hockey camp, skating clinic, and cross-ice games. It introduces new players to the sport and will help more experienced players sharpen their skills. Players are invited to read at least 3 age-appropriate books from the “Skate & Read” list during the season, which begins in February.
Tuition is $99, which includes a team jersey, 16 hours of instruction, games, and several special events.
