Our goal this fall is to have all associations schedule “Try Hockey for Free” events starting in September-through November. USA Hockey's Try Hockey For Free Days (Nov 6, 2021 & March 5, 2022) are designed to provide youth hockey associations with a national platform to introduce new kids to the sport.
We do understand that the national platform will not work for everyone and you may need to customize an event to your needs. However we expect each association to host a “Try Hockey for Free Event” this fall at some level. The purpose of the try hockey event is to try to bring in new families and sign them up into a house like program or into your 8U program.
USA Hockey's Try Hockey For Free program, with the support of the National Hockey League and NHL member clubs, among others, is designed to provide youth hockey associations a national platform to introduce new kids to the sport. Total Hockey and Liberty Mutual Insurance are official sponsors of Try Hockey For Free Days.
February is a great opportunity to attract new families who are thinking hockey because it’s winter.
