The Charlotte Checkers and Jr. Checkers today announced that the Mini Checkers program for mite-aged players (birth years 2011-14), presented by First National Bank, is expanding to include programming at Bojangles’ Coliseum in addition to what is currently offered at Extreme Ice Center in Indian Trail.

Further information on the program, including cost, schedule and registration, will be announced this summer. Those interested in receiving this information as it becomes available should please email [email protected].

Those wishing to enroll in the program must have prior skating training beforehand. To receive such training, The First Goal Program, which requires no experience and comes with a full set of hockey gear, will hold two sessions at Bojangles’ Coliseum this fall at dates and times to be determined. Ice skating lessons are also available at Extreme Ice Center year round.
