Thursday, November 9th, 2023 the Anaheim Ducks hosted Reading is the GOAL Day at Betsy Ross Elementary. Over 45 Anaheim Ducks staff members took time out of their day to read to students, talk about the specifics of their jobs and present them with some special gifts! Sam Carrick, Ryan Strome, and John Ahlers appeared for an assembly with 4th-6th graders. They talked about the importance of literacy in every job, even a professional athlete.
On Monday, November 6th, Anaheim Ducks defenseman Radko Gudas surprised the girls of LEARN HER WAY when he jumped out to help coach the session.
The Anaheim Ducks and The Rinks are excited to announce the launch of LEARN HER WAY, a free ice hockey program for girls, ages 4-12. LEARN HER WAY is open to girls who have no previous on-ice experience. The program aims to provide girls with the opportunity to try hockey in a fun, supportive, and inclusive environment.
LEARN HER WAY is part of a greater initiative, We Play | Her Way. The Anaheim Ducks vision is to foster new pathways towards participation by empowering females and creating a supportive community where they can thrive. We believe every female, regardless of where they start, deserves a chance to explore their passion for hockey.
Making a positive impact with youth in local schools and hockey communities throughout Southern California.
