Skate to Success is a learn to skate program that takes place at the state of the art Fidelity Bank Worcester Ice Center and services over 2,500 fourth grade students from the Worcester Public School system.
Every Tuesday from September through late March, the Railers bus 100 fourth grade students to the Fidelity Bank Worcester Ice Center. Each student gets suited up with skates and a helmet before receiving instruction from Railers players, coaches and staff along with Boston Bruins alumni on the two sheets of ice.
After each skate, all students are fed a lunch from Nonna’s Pizza and Pasta and receive a Skate to Success Railers welcome packet, which includes a Railers school folder, pencils, and a Skate to Success long sleeve jersey shirt. All students also receive autographs from Railers players and mascot Trax.
The Skate to Success program is at no cost to the students or the City of Worcester thanks to The Worcester Railers Foundation and the following sponsors:
