This program is designed to provide youth hockey associations a national platform to introduce new kids to the sport and is a joint effort between USA Hockey, the National Hockey League and NHL member clubs.
Over 450 locations host a try hockey for free clinic for kids between the ages of 4 to 9 usually during the months of November and February or March. With other youth sports wrapping up, this event provides local associations the perfect opportunity to introduce new families to youth hockey.
Any age is ideal to start playing hockey!
KVHA/KVIH Hosted a "Try Hockey for Free" Clinic back on March 3, 2018 and we had a record 76 Applicants. We had many thank you letters from excited parents and kids about the event!!! The Board of Directors and Ice Staff would like to thank the many volunteers who came out! The support on the Ice by the many teams and coaches was amazing on both rinks ! The registration and equipment handout was flawless! Congratulations to everyone for making it a successful event!!!
