Try Hockey For Free Day
Various arenas around the country
Saturday, February 22, 2020*; 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. 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! Once your kids are hooked, find an outdoor rink near you here: Skate the Twin Cities: Where To Find Free Outdoor Ice Rinks. (Most of these open mid-December and close mid-February and are weather-dependent.)
Where to Find Hockey Skates:
Joy’s family loves to use the Minneapolis parks because they offer free loaner skates for her kids ever-growing feet. Gianna outfits her kids at Play It Again Sports. If you are looking to buy new, purchasing through the link below (anything, not just the skates we feature) will help to keep FFTC going.
