Capitals Host Hockey ‘n Heels on Tuesday, Nov. 16
ARLINGTON, Va. – The Washington Capitals have teamed up again with MIX 107.3 to host the popular Hockey ‘n Heels on Tuesday, Nov. 16, at Kettler Capitals Iceplex in Arlington, Va. MIX 107.3 radio personality Chilli Amar will host the event, which runs from 6-9 p.m. with check in beginning at 5:30 p.m. The fifth-annual event features instructional lessons and on-ice demonstrations targeted towards the Capitals’ female audience.
This year’s Hockey ‘n Heels sold out in five minutes, with more than 250 women participating. Just like last year this year’s event was only opened to members of Club Scarlet, the Capitals’ female fan club. To learn more about Club Scarlet go to http://scarlet.capitals.com/.
The evening will be divided into four sessions, with the popular on-ice demonstrations with instructions from Karl Alzner, John Carlson, Marcus Johansson and Semyon Varlamov. Hockey ‘n Heels will use both sheets of ice at Kettler Capitals Iceplex, giving the women an opportunity to spend more time on ice.
The on-ice demonstrations will include how to shoot a slapshot, take a faceoff, and how to stop a puck in the net. While waiting for their turn on the ice the ladies will be able to see and try on different hockey equipment.
The second session is something new this season with Caps’ strength and conditioning coach Mark Nemish explaining to the ladies what fitness routines the players go through. The third session is with head coach Bruce Boudreau and his famous film talk. Boudreau will help the women understand how to dissect and analyze different aspects of the game. All sessions and players are subject to change. The fourth and final session will include a picture in front of a locker set up with the Winter Classic uniform and equipment.
