Lucy and her family are skating on an outdoor rink when she sees a game of hockey going on. It looks like fun, but maybe too challenging. Supported by her parents, Lucy enrolls in an introductory-hockey clinic, and thanks to an encouraging instructor, she and her friends learn basic hockey skills, have fun on the ice and decide to add hockey to their list of favorite sports!

The Lucy Tries Sports series encourages children to get active and participate in sports and recreation. To find out what Lucy will try next, visit www.lucytriessports.com.

CM: Canadian Review of Materials - September 21, 2018
"Written with an energetic rhyming scheme and includes fast sport facts at the end of the book for readers curious to know more. The lively, colourful illustrations by James Hearne once again capture the movement and fun Lucy and her friends have on the ice, and, of course, Lucy continues to be a character with a zest for discovery and a love of being active."
Booklist - August 14, 2018
"This upbeat sports story is pleasing in many ways…The latest volume in the Lucy Tries Sports series scores when it comes to encouraging girls in athletics."
