Hockey helmets offered through car dealerships

Chevrolet is providing five-year-old children across Canada an opportunity to get their first hockey helmet for free.

Starting Friday (Aug. 19), parents can register for their child’s free helmet through the auto manufacturer’s Chevrolet Hockey Helmet Program.

The program gives parents peace of mind while instilling the importance of on-ice safety from the beginning of their child’s sporting involvement in hockey.

All players born in 2006 who register to play hockey with Hockey Canada in the 2011-12 season will be eligible to receive a free Bauer helmet from Chevrolet.

Parents who sign up at can pick up their Chevrolet Safe and Fun Hockey package containing a certificate for a new Bauer 2100 hockey helmet from their Chevrolet dealer.

Nanaimo’s Laird Wheaton Chevrolet is located at 2590 Bowen Rd.

The certificate can be exchanged for the helmet at Forzani retail outlets including Sport Chek, Sport Mart, InterSport and Sports Experts.
