Wheeling Nailers Visit Orchard Park Head Start Centers

The children enrolled at the Orchard Park 1 and 2 Head Start Centers enjoy playing the street hockey game each day during outside play time.  The children use a plastic puck, four hockey sticks, and two nets to play the game. The teachers' have demonstrated the proper use of the sticks and how to shoot and score.

Because of the children's interest in hockey, a call was made to the Wheeling Nailers.  Ben and Mat, members of the Wheeling Nailers team, arrived in their team shirts and game face to try and score a goal on the children at NPHS. The Nailer's took a loss to the children at Head Start.   D.J., the Wheeling Nailer's radio announcer, also joined Ben and Mat during the visit.  D.J. talked to the children about the numbers on players' shirts and how he talks on the radio about the players during game time.

The children were invited to attend a practice at the Wesbanco Arena to watch the Nailer's "on the ice".

The children enjoyed the visit and the win!
