Get on the ice and become a hockey player for the day!

Try Hockey for Free is a lively and relaxed event for kids ages 4-9 new to hockey. By participating in these events they get the opportunity to try holding a stick, standing up on skates, do a little bit of skating and hitting the puck around.

USA Hockey publishes nation-wide Try Hockey For Free days in February and November. Check back for next season's dates and registration links soon.
