TAMPA, Fla. — Pack your bags and join FOX Sports Sun on a trip to the Czech Republic as we document a trip overseas led by former Lightning player turned youth hockey coach, Vinny Prospal, and the 2015 National Champion Tier II 14 and under Tampa Bay Scorpions. On Saturday, Nov. 7 at 11:00 p.m., “Inside the Lightning: Thunder Overseas” will be televised statewide upon conclusion of the Tampa Bay vs. Minnesota Wild game.
“Inside the Lightning: Thunder Overseas” follows the 23-day journey of 19 local kids as Prospal took the team to his native country to see how American kids fared against Czech kids on the ice. His Assistant Coach Chris Reed and Manager Chris Schnapp also made the trip.The town of Hluboka nad Vltavou and the Pouzar Hockey Center in Ceske Budejovice set the stage for a look at hockey in its purest form. The Scorpions participated in a local tournament where they faced off against some of the Czech Republic’s best teams. The trip wasn’t just about competing as the kids also had the opportunity to visit Prague, Cesky Krumlov and a castle.
Youth hockey in Tampa is at the forefront of the Lightning’s mission off the ice, led by the Build the Thunder initiative introduced earlier this season. Build the Thunder’s goal is to grow the game of hockey and teach life skills to young people in Tampa Bay over the next five years. More information on Build the Thunder can be found here.
“Inside the Lightning” is presented all-season long by Gold & Diamond Source. Be sure to follow @FOXSportsBolts on Twitter for live coverage and information on the Lightning, and visit FOXSportsFlorida.com for channel listings and exclusive Bolts coverage.
