ECHL invites kids to participate in Try Hockey For Free Day

The ECHL invites boys and girls ages four to nine years old to participate in Try Hockey For Free Day on Saturday, Nov. 2. Hockey rinks across the country will be hosting a Try Hockey for Free clinic to experience ice hockey for the first time and learn the basics of the sport in a fun, safe environment.

Try Hockey For Free Day is part of Come Play Hockey Month. This program, designed to provide youth hockey associations a national platform to introduce new kids to the sport, is a joint‐effort between USA Hockey, the National Hockey League, and NHL member clubs. With Total Hockey and Liberty Mutual Responsible Sports, the official sponsors of Try Hockey For Free Day, USA Hockey has 500 locations offering kids between the ages of 4 and 9 years old this unique opportunity.

By visiting, individuals can enter their respective Zip Code to find local rinks participating in this initiative (over 500 throughout the country) which allows children ages 4-9 to suit up and play the game – a true grassroots movement to encourage the growth of our sport.
