THE ROCKET HOCKEY TOUR IS BACK IN LOCAL RINKS
FOUR TEAMS WILL HAVE THE CHANCE TO EXPERIENCE PRACTICES WITH THE ROCKET
The Rocket is proud to present the sixth edition of the Rocket Hockey Tour. Hockey Québec also joins as a collaborator of the program. This community initiative gives three teams a typical Rocket practice experience with Rocket assistant coach Martin Laperrière and a few players. In addition to the three chosen teams, one last winning team will receive an extraordinary experience at Place Bell, with a practice on the Rocket ice, a visit of the locker room and several other surprises.
The Rocket Hockey Tour will consist of three arena visits during which Rocket assistant coach Martin Laperrière will lead on-ice practice in addition to discussing his philosophy as a coach. It will be a beneficial experience for both coaches and players. Teams can submit their application by completing a registration form at the bottom of the page. The three teams, as well as the winning team will be chosen randomly. The Rocket Hockey Tour will take place from March until mid-April.
“I look forward to participating in the Rocket Hockey Tour initiative this year. It is a pleasure for me and for the players to be able to share our experience with young players and coaches. This activity helps to share our passion for hockey, which goes hand in hand with our objectives as an organization. As a coach, helping future generations of coaches improve their hockey knowledge is very important to me. In addition, I will be able to answer the various questions the coaches and players have. Hockey is a sport that is constantly evolving, and it is essential for me to help future generations develop,” said Martin Laperrière, Laval Rocket assistant coach.
This initiative aims to increase the presence of the Rocket in minor hockey associations in the region in addition to contributing to the development of young players and coaches. The Rocket Hockey Tour focuses on learning about hockey, in addition to encouraging participants to adopt a healthy lifestyle through their favorite sport.
