Developed with the help of experts from USA Hockey and Hockey Canada, the Learn to Play
initiative aims to be the gold standard for youth hockey programs with the goal of inspiring more families to join the hockey community. Learn to Play changes the way youth hockey is offered by providing first time participants, between 5-9 years of age, head-to-toe equipment, age appropriate instruction and certified coaching, led by NHL Alumni, in a fun and safe atmosphere. This program is for first-timers only.
If you have previously participated in Little Blackhawks or if you already play on a team, you cannot enroll for this program.
If you are interested in registering for a session next spring, it is highly recommended a Learn to Skate program is completed before starting Little Blackhawks. You may register on our Learn to Skate page.
The Little Blackhawks program includes 7-10 weeks of lessons and a full set of CCM Equipment! Weekly sessions are run by ice rink staff and local coaches.
