First Shift Hockey

The application period for local hockey associations wishing to host the NHL/NHLPA First Shift in 2021-22 is NOW OPEN!

A truly unique experience designed to help kids fall in love with hockey. The six-week learn to play program continues to focus on having fun while learning basic skills. Full head-to-toe Bauer equipment is included with registration.
