Ball Hockey comes full circle for Tyler as the Dallas Stars forward in conjunction with the Dallas Stars Foundation donated the Tyler Seguin Ball Hockey Court to Boys and Girls Club of Collin County.
The court surface will be built using a sport court which is a high-quality modular synthetic sports flooring system.
“The Boys and Girls Club is an important community organization and I am proud to collaborate with them,” said Seguin. “Their leadership development initiatives, after school, and sports programs are valuable building blocks to enriching lives of local children. I look forward to continuing to work with their dedicated staff on future projects.”
