Program Details

Is your child interested in playing hockey? If so, you’re in luck! USA Hockey Arena is a host site that offers Try Hockey for Free for kids aged 4-9.

Try Hockey for Free is a program that is designed to provide a national platform to introduce children to the sport of hockey, free of charge with all equipment provided. It is a joint effort between USA Hockey, the National Hockey League, and NHL member clubs.

Equipment Kit Includes

  • Stick
  • Try Hockey for Free jersey
  • Helmet
  • Shoulder pads
  • Elbow pads
  • Hockey pants
  • Hockey gloves
  • Shin guards
  • Skates

Equipment will be issued morning of your session. Please arrive 45 minutes prior to your session to give your child enough time to get dressed.

In addition to the equipment provided, we recommend that children wear undergarments (sweatpants, leggings, compression pants) under their hockey pants to be more comfortable. At a bare minimum, please bring a helmet and gloves as equipment may run out.
