TRY HOCKEY FOR FREE DAYS

Curious about hockey?  Several times during the year, the Shoreline Sharks, in partnership with USA Hockey, invite kids of all ages to join us on the ice to Try Hockey For Free (THFF) without any commitment. The fun event is designed for kids WITH basic skating experience (able to skate unassisted). 

Our team of certified coaches uses stations and games to introduce the sport of hockey.  Additionally, our travel team players volunteer to help, many of whom took their first steps in skates at a Try Hockey for Free Day.

All registered participants will receive a complimentary USA Hockey jersey (youth sizes only) while supplies last and pizza following the ice time. 

A few notes:

  • Skating Experience:  basic skating skills required
  • Required Equipment:  skates, gloves, and helmet 
  • Suggested Equipment:  hockey sticks and elbow/shin guards
  • Ice skate Rental: available at East Haven and Northford ice rinks
  • Arrival Time:  be at the rink 30 minutes before start time to check-in and dress
  • Waivers:  participants must have a signed waiver (unless you are a registered USA Hockey member)
