The Piney Orchard Ice Arena will invite the public to try hockey for free on Saturday as part of the "Hockey Weekend Across America" event.
The arena will be one of nine rinks in Maryland, Washington, DC, and Virginia taking part in the 6th annual event organized by USA Hockey.
The Washington Capitals are also a supporter of the weekend's events, which will feature clinics on Saturday for anyone interested in learning the sport.
Each day of the weekend will have a theme. On Friday, players are encouraged to wear their favorite hockey jersey, and the Capitals are encouraging everyone Tweet photos to @WashCaps and @CapsYouthHockey.
On Saturday, 200 rinks nationwide will take part in the "Try Hockey for Free" event.
On Sunday, local rinks are encouraged to honor popular and accomplished players from the past.
