Try Hockey for Free Day on November 3rd

The Northfield Hockey Association invites boys and girls ages four to nine years old to the Northfield Ice Arena on Saturday, November 3rd  from 10:15-11:15am for 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.

“We look forward to introducing new families to our sport,” said NHA President Dean Kruger. “It’s FREE to skate at our Mite level (ages 4 to 6).  And for the remainder of the year, any new players at the U8 and Sr. Mite level will also skate FREE.  To help keep costs reasonable for parents, we have an equipment rental program that provides players with shin pads, gloves, elbow pads, helmet w/ facemask and a bag.  Please check out the NHA website for more information –  IT’S NOT TOO LATE TO REGISTER.

All participants should arrive a minimum 30 minutes early to be fitted for gear.  Free USA Hockey jerseys and NHL goodie bags to the first 40 kids to register.  To register for one of the 500+ Try Hockey for Free opportunities, please visit or contact Kari Scheurer at 612-281-0056.
