The St. Louis Board of Alderman have approved a plan by the local non-profit City Hockey to replace the current roller rink in Tilles Park with a new facility featuring synthetic ice. According to the City Hockey website, they aim:
… to tear down the barriers that keep city children from the sport and bring new players to the game. Thereby, instilling in participants the values of teamwork, dedication, tenacity and self-respectthat are so necessary to be successful in both hockey and life.
City Hockey intends to supply several kids with all the equipment necessary for playing hockey; they will also be supplying the capital necessary to construct the new facility at the park. The group is accepting applications for their inaugural season.
Fox 2 News reported last night on the story, as well as the Suburban Journals.
