AMARILLO, TX (KFDA) - Boys and girls living at Cal Farley’s Boys Ranch will get the opportunity to bump shoulders with Amarillo’s own professional athletes.

For the second year in a row, members of the Amarillo Bulls hockey team will visit the school on Sept. 24.

The players will visit with the residents of Boys Ranch and participate in team-building exercises with them, as well as receiving a tour of the facility.

The team will later take on the Boys Ranch Adventure Challenge Course, an obstacle course built to test physical endurance and problem-solving skills.

Kaitlyn Johnson, Boys Ranch’s director of corporate and foundation relations, said the visit helps the hockey players build communication and teamwork while building relationships with the kids.

“We’re excited to again welcome the Amarillo Bulls to experience firsthand the positive impact Cal Farley’s adventure course can have on teams of all sizes,” said Johnson. "They’ll participate in some of the same challenges that help Boys Ranch youth build trust and form strong relationships.”

In a statement, a representative for the Amarillo Bulls said the team is excited to find out how the experience can help them grow on and off of the ice.
