Try Hockey for Free - presented by KraftHeinz
USA Hockey's Try Hockey For Free Day, is designed to provide youth hockey associations a national platform to introduce new kids to the sport. The upcoming events for the 2018-19 season are: Saturday, November 10, 2018 and Saturday, February 23, 2019. Last season, nearly 25,000 kids experienced youth hockey for the first time. This opportunity targets kids between the ages of 4 and 9.
For November, the goal is to have over 450 locations host a Try Hockey For Free clinic. With fall youth sports wrapping up, this event provides local associations the perfect opportunity to introduce new families to youth hockey.
February provides a great opportunity to attract new families who are thinking about hockey because it’s winter. With a goal of 350 host locations, this event will take place in late February 2019.
Facilities or associations are eligible to host a USA Hockey Try Hockey For Free event if they intend to seek registration for the participants in a USA Hockey sanctioned program.
*If you or your association hosted a Try Hockey For Free event last season, participated in the 2 and 2 Challenge, or utilized Club Excellence, please register with the same email address for portal access.
