Free helmets for five year old hockey players

.

Safe helmets for young hockey players is the goal of a program that provides all five-year-old players across Canada with hockey helmets free of charge.

Chevrolet Safe and Fun Hockey is making the program a reality. Beginning on Aug. 19, parents can register for their children’s free helmets at www.chevrolethockey.ca

A news release from Safe and Fun Hockey said the program gives parents peace of mind while instilling the importance of on-ice safety from the beginning of their child’s sporting involvement.

All players born in 2006 who register to play with Hockey Canada teams in the 2011-12 season will be eligible to receive a free Bauer helmet from Chevrolet.

Parents who sign up at www.chevrolethockey.ca can pick up their Chevrolet Safe and Fun Hockey package, containing a certificate for the new Bauer 2100 hockey helmet, from their nearest Chevrolet dealer.

In the 2010-11 season, more than 23,000 five-year- olds were registered with Hockey Canada.
