This summer, kids across the city of Detroit will have the unique opportunity to participate in a new program from the Detroit Red Wings’ pioneering Learn, Play, Score platform. “Street Hockey in The D at Home” – powered by Chevrolet.

The free, six-week virtual summer program, in partnership with Detroit Parks & Recreation, is available to students aged 6-14 during July and August; registration begins Wednesday, June 17.

Building upon the “Street Hockey in the D” programming originally launched within Detroit Public Schools Community District K-8 physical education classes earlier this year, the Learn, Play, Score platform is evolving during the COVID-19 pandemic to offer unique online instructional content through “Street Hockey in the D at Home.”

Participants will learn the basics of street hockey from Learn, Play, Score Ambassadors and Red Wings players in a virtual Google Classroom setting. Each video will focus on street hockey skills and drills, physical activity and wellness.

Participant registration will take place June 17-19, June 22 and June 23-24, from 8-11 a.m., at two Detroit Parks & Recreation locations that also serve as community hubs for family food pack distribution.

Registrants will receive a complimentary Red Wings hat, street hockey stick and ball so their kids can participate at home. Registration locations and dates are as follows, and is limited to Detroit city residents:

Adams Butzel Recreation Complex
10500 Lyndon Street
Detroit, MI 48238

Farwell Recreation Center
2711 Outer Drive East
Detroit, MI 48234
