The New Castle Recreation Department is offering the new Slapshot Floor Hockey program for children 5 to 8 years old beginning in mid-January.

Although there isn't any ice rink in New Castle, that doesn't mean area youth can't play hockey. This new six-week co-ed program includes weekly practices and scrimmage games, with the focus on teaching basic hockey skills in a fun active environment. The program will be conducted on Thursday evenings from 5-6p.m., Jan. 17-Feb. 21. No equipment is needed, as the Colorado Avalanche donated the sticks, pucks and goals.

The fee is $40 and registration can be done by phone at 984-3352 or online at www.newcastlerec.com.
