DETROIT – Four-time Stanley Cup Champion Darren McCarty will serve as a guest coach for the Red Wings Street Hockey Summer Tour stop in Fraser on Tuesday, Aug. 9 starting at 10:00 a.m. After making seven stops throughout the state of Michigan, the Street Hockey Summer Tour, presented by Meijer, will roll make two stops in at Meijer locations in Metro Detroit this week – Tuesday in Fraser (34385 Utica Rd.) and Thursday in Allen Park (3565 Fairlane Dr.). The final stop of the tour will be on Monday, Aug. 15 in Kalamazoo, which was rescheduled due to a rainout.
The Street Hockey Summer Tour takes over the parking lots of Meijer locations to host free street hockey clinics for children ages 7-12 of all skill levels and hockey experiences. Registration is full for the final two stops of the tour, which will feature 120 children participating in each clinic (60 kids from ages 7-9; 60 kids from ages 10-12).
Each clinic is divided into two sessions by age. The younger age group (ages 7-9) starts at 10:00 a.m. each day, while the older group (ages 10-12) begins at 1:30 p.m. The first hour of each session features a one-hour clinic, followed by a 30-minute pick-up street hockey game. The clinics are instructed by Detroit Red Wings representatives and local hockey players and coaches.
