Seattle Kraken are proud to partner with the NHL to offer Learn to Play to first time hockey players. In addition to learning beginner hockey fundamentals, each player will be sized for a complete set of custom Kraken Learn to Play hockey equipment and receive a free one-year USA Hockey registration number.

This program is only available for first time players. Kids with prior hockey experience should register for Learn to Play 2 or Jr Squid.

How to register: players in Learn to Skate Hockey 1 or Hockey 2 will be invited to the class towards the end of their LTS session. Players coming from outside our Learn to Skate program will need to reach out to Jr Kraken staff to receive registration link. There is no publicly available registration for this class.
