On the ice and Florida-bound
Ice isn’t something you normally associate with Costa Rica or Florida, but one group of kids plan to show their sub-zero mastery in both places. The Castillo Knights Peewee Selects group, shown here at their ice rink – Costa Rica’s one and only – at the Castillo Country Club in Heredia, are set to take part in a “Breakaway Challenge”shootout competition during the first intermission of the Florida Panthers/Pittsburgh Penguins on Oct. 20 in Sunrise, Florida.
The players will skate out onto the same ice where the current NHL champions play. A future hockey champion from Costa Rica? Stay tuned.
