Preds are Taking Hockey to the Streets

Predators Taking Hockey to the Streets is a grassroots marketing initiative in which members of the Nashville Predators organization make unannounced visits to neighborhoods where kids routinely gather to play street hockey.  The program gives young fans an exciting opportunity to interact with Predators players, coaches, team mascot Gnash and/or staff literally in their front yard.  The program aims to promote and grow hockey participation at the grassroots level in Middle Tennessee.

The Predators Street Team will arrive equipped with street hockey nets, sticks, balls and goalie equipment – everything needed for a friendly game of Predators versus the neighborhood.  This offers youngsters the opportunity to sample what it would be like to play hockey.  All equipment used at neighborhood visits has been donated by the National Hockey League through the NHL Street program and the Nashville Predators Street Pride program

If street hockey is played in your neighborhood and you would like Taking Hockey to the Streets to schedule a surprise visit, please have an adult contact the Predators Amateur & Youth Hockey Department at (615) 770-2152.
