Try Hockey For Free Events

Saturday February 24th (All Youth) 8:30am - 9:30am at Olympic View Arena

Saturday March 9th (Girls Only) 8:30am - 9:30am at Olympic View Arena

Try Hockey For Free is a beautiful event where your young kids get to have their FIRST on-ice hockey experience! We will have plenty of coaches on hand to provide your child the fun, safe, and exciting hockey environment that is standard practice at SJHA. Skaters will get an opportunity to learn the basic skills of youth hockey and enjoy their first game. This is also a very important event for bringing new players into the game.  We invite all of you to reach out to friends, neighbors, family, co-workers and community groups to help spread the word!!  

CHECK IN:  Please plan on arriving at the rink at least 30 minutes prior to the start time for the event for check-in and to get fitted with equipment.

EQUIPMENT:  We will have instructors on hand to help suit up your child; you can see how the equipment goes on by checking out the Getting Dressed video.

What to bring: We encourage those who have access to equipment, to please bring it. If you do not have any equipment, you will need to bring:

-   A loose-fitting pair of sweatpants or snow pants

-   A pair of gloves (they don’t need to be hockey gloves- mittens are fine)

-   A helmet

-   A Smile

What will be provided:  We have skates and a limited amount of equipment available for you to borrow.  If you have any equipment questions, please let us know.

If you have any additional questions, please feel free to contact us.

Thank you,

Jerry Weir - Beginner Director @ Seattle Junior Hockey Association
