The Israel Recreational Hockey Association took a Hanukka break last week from its league schedule to hold a two-day ice hockey camp for kids at the Canada Centre in Metulla.

Four dozen kids, ages six to 16, got to sharpen their skating and stick-handling skills under the tutelage of coaches Sean Insler and Beni Chernie.

IRHA president Danny Spodek said the large turnout was in part due to a previous camp held at the end of August.

“It’s clear that kids love to be on the ice, and we definitely will be holding more kids programs,” Spodek said.

Following the camp, IRHA players had an exhibition hockey game to work off some of the holiday calories. With several teenage new olim on the ice the game was fast paced with the team comprised of players from the Northern Whites and Jerusalem Capitals downing the opposition team with skaters from the Central Blues and Metulla.

New players are welcome in the five-team non-contact league, which will host its 5th annual international tournament in February with teams expected from the USA, Canada and Europe.
