FLINT, Mich. - Hockey can be an expensive sport for parents.
So, if your child interested in the sport, a free program in Flint could be a lifesaver for parents.
The Flint Inner City Youth Hockey Program is signing kids up starting this week.
This free nine-week course gives kids ages 8 to 11 the chance to learn how to ice skate and play hockey.
But we are told there are only 30 spots available, so they can go quick.
"The first year was really hard learning how to skate, learning how to put the gear on, just learning the sport itself and the rules. It was really hard but with the help of my teammates, coaches and Rico, it was like it became really easy and I really started to understand it," said youth hockey player Everett Graham.
Another cost is gear. This program also has the hockey equipment already, for the kids to use.
