The Porrazzo Skating Rink in East Boston’s Constitution Beach recreation area will be the site of a free hockey clinic for children 4 to 9 on Sept. 7.

Blades the Bruin, mascot of the Boston Bruins hockey team, and members of the teams’ youth development program will co-host a free introductory hockey clinic for children in East Boston.

The Bruins representatives will join with FMC Ice Sports to host the clinic for children 4 to 9 called GOAL! — Get Out and Learn — on Sept. 7.

“GOAL! encourages children to try a free hockey course in a game-based, fun environment,” FMC Ice Sports said in a statement. “Don’t miss your chance to take part in this fun and free hockey clinic.”

Skates, helmets, and protective gear will be provided to participants, but quantities are limited, the company said.

The clinic is scheduled to take place from 11 – 11:50 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 7, at the Porrazzo Skating Rink in East Boston’s Constitution Beach recreation area.

FMC Ice Sports is a division of Facility Management Corporation. It operates and manages the Porrazzo Skating Rink for the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation.

“The primary focus of the company is the development and expansion of affordable skating opportunities and the extension of the operating season at the ice arenas, providing year-round programming to local skating enthusiasts,” the company said.
