City College Hosts Ice Hockey at Harlem’s Annual Gear Day


NEW YORK — Harlem ice hockey gears up for a new season, and now the students have a little help getting ready.

On Tuesday, parents and players of the Harlem Youth League attended the annual tackle day at City College of New York.

Equipment donated and collected by the school was brought in so that new players could fit and pick up what they needed and returning players could upgrade their equipment.

“Our parents tell us it’s like a family, and it’s the ice hockey community in Harlem, and they’re very grateful and appreciate it, and like a lot of the kids, they’re learning a non-traditional sport, the parents get to know it and also learn it and become fans of this sport. And they are on the ice rink, many of them, every night, all through the winter,” said Malik Garvin, program director of ice hockey in Haarlem.
