A club is looking for stars of the future to break the ice and find out if ice hockey is a sport for them with a free session on Sunday.

Inverness Highlanders Junior Ice Hockey Club are holding a free session for children at the Inverness Ice Centre on Sunday as part of their beginners programme they are hosting.

The club received funding and are using it to allow kids to try out ice hockey and see if they want to take the sport up as the club search for new players.

The money they received has also been used to buy equipment for players to use which will be provided to anyone who wants to come and have a go on the ice.

Treasurer Katy Kitchingham says the beginners sessions are designed to welcome juniors of all abilities to take to the rink and find out if hockey is for them

“The sessions are open to kids between the ages of five and 18 and you do not need any ice hockey experience,” she said.

“Any children who want to give it a go can come and borrow some kit and not worry about paying for the sessions.

“Anyone who is interested in joining us and taking part in ice hockey is welcome to come along on Sunday.”
