Wear your favorite Amerks jersey to school or work on Friday

The Rochester Americans are proud to support USA Hockey’s Hockey Weekend Across America, scheduled for Feb. 28 to Mar. 2, 2014. While the Amerks are on a road trip this weekend, the organization will be on hand at various Try Hockey For Free sessions around Rochester on Saturday, Mar. 1.

Hockey Weekend Across America was created by USA Hockey in 2008 to engage the hockey community in celebrating the sport of hockey at all levels and exposing the sport to new audiences.

Friday (Feb. 28) is USA Hockey’s “Wear Your Favorite Jersey” Day. Fans who wear their favorite Amerks jersey to work or school are encouraged to send photos to the Amerks’ official Facebook and Twitter accounts for the team to share.

On Saturday, Mar. 1, USA Hockey and over 400 local programs across the country will encourage kids, ages 4 to 9, to come to a local participating rink and try youth hockey as part of Hockey Weekend Across America. All locations have a limited amount of equipment available for use.

The Amerks will support the efforts of local youth hockey programs by having the team’s mascot, the Moose, as well as staff members at the following rinks:

•    10:00 a.m.: Bill Gray’s Regional Iceplex – 2700 Brighton Henrietta Town Line Rd, Brighton, NY 14623 (Moose and Staff)

•    1:00  p.m.: Thomas Creek Ice Arena – 80 Lyndon Rd, Fairport, NY 14450 (Moose and Staff)

•    4:00 p.m.: Webster Ice Arena – 865 Publishers Parkway, Webster, NY 14580 (Staff only)

All kids who participate at the aforementioned Try Hockey For Free sessions can receive a voucher for a complimentary ticket to an Amerks home game with additional tickets available to them for just $12.
