For the ninth-consecutive year the Washington Capitals and children’s charity Dreams for Kids held their Extreme Recess Hockey Clinic Friday afternoon at MedStar Capitals Iceplex. The event is held for children with physical and developmental disabilities. Washington Capitals players Travis Boyd, Brett Connolly, Nic Dowd and Lars Eller were on hand to skate and play hockey with more than 100 participants. NoVa Caps photojournalist Joe Noyes was also on hand to capture a few of the images from today’s event.
Dreams For Kids DC, a 501(c)(3) children’s charity, organizes life-changing activities that empower children with physical and developmental disabilities to unite with their peers and realize their full potential. Their clinics pair each child with a volunteer so every child is engaged effectively as they participate in sports, often for the very first time.
Here are a few images from today’s event:
