JR DUCKS SEND SUPPORT TO MARINES IN AFGHANISTAN
The lessons learned in hockey transcend the rink. Todd Marchant knows that. He spent 17 years as a player in the NHL, won the Stanley Cup with the Anaheim Ducks in 2007, and is currently the Director of Player Development for the Ducks. He is also the head coach of the Junior Ducks PeeWee AA-1 team.
During a preseason gathering for the team, Marchant said he wanted the team to get involved in the community and give back; he suggested supporting deployed troops. Parents went into action to find a fit, and a connection was formed with Lima Company Marines from the 3rd Battalion, 7th Marine Regiment in Twentynine Palms, California. Lima Company arrived in Afghanistan in September for a planned six month deployment. Immediately, the team started writing letters and sending care packages.

Anaheim Ducks Learn to Play Program
The Anaheim Ducks Learn to Play Program presented by Reebok is back, giving all first-time hockey players the chance to get on the rink (ice or inline) in full hockey equipment for FREE! Participants receive instruction from The Rinks coaching staff on how to skate properly while implementing some of the basic skills in hockey such as passing, shooting, and stick handling.
The Learn to Play Program is a (4) four week session geared toward participants 10 years old and younger (due to equipment sizes). Each participant is provided with an equipment bag, helmet, shin guards, hockey pants, elbow pads, shoulder pads, gloves, stick and a jersey, which they get to keep during the duration of the session, giving them the opportunity to practice what they have learned between each session. Skate rentals are provided for free at each rink as well. The use of full hockey equipment allows participants to get the feel of skating in full hockey gear, allowing them to experience the sport as a whole without taking on the financial commitment of purchasing all the equipment.
