Learn to play Hockey


Learn to Play is a program that provides a unique opportunity for families to join the hockey community and for participants to develop fundamental skills to help them succeed both on and off the ice. Created jointly by the National Hockey League Players’ Association (NHLPA) and the National Hockey League (NHL). Learn to Play’s goal is to inspire youth and welcome more families into the hockey community.

The value of learning to play hockey goes beyond skating and puck-handling skills. Its’ greatest value is the role it plays in the development of character and life skills such as RESPONSIBILITY, RESPECT, INTEGRITY, PERSEVERANCE, and TEAMWORK. Learn to Play is the start of a new experience, extending further than the ice. It’s about falling down and getting up, making new friends from teammates, and most of all, creating fun memories that’ll last a lifetime.

Whether you’re playing, watching, or supporting, hockey cultivates community. The Learn to Play Program aims to foster that community by providing unique experiences and exclusive access to NHL clubs and Alumni. By connecting the next generation of hockey stars with current hockey stars, Learn to Play provides families with an exciting experience as they take their first step in their hockey journey.
