Local schoolchildren join the Nottingham Panthers on the ice in new schools programme
The Panthers were joined by the group of schoolchildren from the Blue Bell Hill Trust as part of a new initative of school visits to the rink. The new style school programme involves 300 children from five schools coming to watch the Panthers train and then having the chance to skate on the ice with the team.
In previous seasons, the Panthers have sent players on weekly school visits to spread the message of a healthy lifestyle, working hard and good team spirit. This year however, with help from the National Ice Centre and in partnership with the Blue Bell Hill Trust and Loughborough University School of Business and Economics, the children were able to visit the rink and get involved with some skating on the ice!
The school currently has a number of Nottingham Panthers players studying on our MBA programme including the Panthers captain, Brad Moran, who took eight year old James Marshall out onto the ice after having broken his leg earlier in the month.
