Windy City Hockey Foundation

The Windy City Hockey Foundation gave a hockey clinic to several students earlier this week. There was a fantastic turnout from our students and parents. Children learned the basics of hockey, participated in drills, and enjoyed pizza afterward! Thanks to everyone who volunteered their time and participated.
