Try Hockey For Free Day
Various arenas around the country
Saturday, February 23, 2019; FREE!
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 on Saturday, March 3rd. The event 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.
Participating locations change from year to year, but you can type in your zip code and find the closest arena here. All locations will have limited equipment available for use.
Who knows? This might be the beginning of a lifelong love of hockey. It certainly helps us get through our long Minnesota winters!
If your kids aren’t quite ready for hockey, but want to skate this winter, we have compiled a list for you at Skate the Twin Cities: Where To Find Free Outdoor Ice Rinks, but note that many municipalities have closed their outdoor rinks for the season. We recommend verifying before heading out. For more ideas for fun physical activities try these 45+ Fun Physical Activities for Kids of All Ages or check out our Family Sports & Fitness Page.
