Try Hockey For Free Day – Saturday, March 5, 2022

On the fence about making the investment to put your kid in hockey? I understand. I’ve been there myself. And I highly recommend you give the sport a try for free at a Try Hockey For Free Day event. This program gives kids (ages 4-9)  a shot at experiencing the basics of hockey without financial commitment. It’s strictly for fun! Plus, coaches will be on hand to offer tips and provide equipment.

Joy’s family loves to use the Minneapolis parks for ice skating because they offer free loaner skates for her kids ever-growing feet. Gianna outfits her kids at Play It Again Sports each year.
