Free helmets for young players

Kids born in 2006 treated to new gear

Starting today, August 19, parents can register for a free hockey helmet at www.chevrolethockey.ca.

Here’s how it works: All players born in 2006 who register to play hockey with Hockey Canada in the 2011/2012 season will be eligible to receive a free Bauer helmet from Chevrolet.

Parents who sign up online can pick up their Chevrolet Safe and Fun Hockey package containing a certificate for the new Bauer 2100 hockey helmet from their closest Chevrolet dealer. The certificate can be exchanged for the helmet at the designated Forzani retail outlet in their local area, including Sport Chek, Hockey Experts, Sport Mart, InterSport, and Sports Experts.

In the 2010/2011 season, over 23,000 five-year-olds were registered with Hockey Canada.
