(A color and formatted version of this article is available - VOWS DEK Hockey)
Organized street hockey is called Dek Hockey. It is played in tennis courts, driveways, school yards, and parking lots. Dek Hockey is a running game played similar to ice hockey with the exception that body checks are NOT allowed. Running, stickhandling, passing and shooting are the basic movements required to provide an exciting and fast game.
We are starting weekly games on Tuesday evenings. There will be 2 groups, one for children under 18 and one for 18 and over.
WHERE: Old Denton/Timberland Outdoor Rink
