ST. GEORGE — Children ages 5-18 are invited to participate in a free 90-minute hockey clinic in St. George put on by the Vegas Golden Knights professional hockey team.
The clinic is scheduled to take place Friday, Aug. 9, from 10-11:30 a.m. at the St. George Recreation Center, 285 S. 400 East, St. George. There is no charge, but participants need to register in advance. Registration can be done online by clicking here.

The clinic has a limit of 80 participants, but as of Monday afternoon more than 60 spots were still available, according to St. George City Recreation Department staff.
Participants do not need to have any prior hockey playing experience and do not need to bring any equipment, according to the event notice posted on the recreation department’s website.
“Come learn the basic skills of stick handling, passing, and more!” the announcement states.
Among the personnel who are scheduled to appear at the event are veteran player Deryk Engelland, broadcaster Gary Lawless and Chance, the team’s popular Gila monster mascot.
