The Washington Capitals Hockey School program has announced a new partnership with Bar-T to add ball hockey to their after-school Kids Club. Bar-T Kids Club program is the largest private provider of before and after school programs in Montgomery County.

Per the press release: “They’re having a great time already,” said Bar-T’s CEO Joe Richardson. “As I was bringing in some of the new equipment, the kids were asking me, ‘What is that, what do we got here,’ and when I opened up the sticks, they were speechless.”

“We’re always looking for ways to push ahead and we consider ourselves to be the best childcare provider in the area,” he added. “For us to make a partnership like this, it lets us take things to the next level and give kids at Bar-T something no one else gets.”

Bar-T is affiliated with 36 schools in Montgomery County and the Capitals will partner with 21 of them to start the month of February and eventually expand to all by the end of the year.

“Kids love to learn, and they love to learn new things,” said Richardson. “The way that we teach them, they really latch onto it. We do a ton of different clubs from computer programming to makeover club, soccer and football. We have kids who already played hockey and now with this program they can be like, ‘This is my moment to show everyone what I can do.'”

The Caps Hockey School program had been partnered with Montgomery County Public Schools since 2019 so these schools already possess equipment donated by the Capitals. Now with Bar-T, the Caps donated additional equipment for Bar-T to have for its programs separate from the school itself.
