Kids get chance to skate with the Pensacola Ice Flyers
PENSACOLA, Fla. (WEAR) —
The Southern Youth Sports Association held its yearly banquet Monday night for hundreds of young athletes.
The association organizes sports leagues for children in the Pensacola area, including football, baseball, basketball, and cheerleading.
After the banquet, the kids got the chance to hit the ice with the Pensacola Ice Flyers.
For many, it was their first taste of hockey and ice skating.
"Anytime I can spread the game to anyone, especially young kids, it means the world," said Ice Flyer Matt Johnson.
The Southern Youth Sports Association also offers after-school programs and provides help in getting kids a high school diploma.
The group is always looking for donations and more volunteers.
