Little Wild Learn to Play hockey registration opens May 20
The Little Wild Learn to Play Hockey Program will be featured this September at the Plymouth Ice Center, 3650 Plymouth Blvd.
The four-week program is set for 6-7 p.m. Wednesdays Sept. 4, Sept. 11, Sept. 18 and Sept. 25.
A program for children ages 5-8 who have not yet participated in organized youth hockey programs, Little Wild introduces beginners to the game of hockey. The program is taught by USA Hockey-certified coaches.
Before participating in the program, Minnesota Wild staff recommend children take skating lessons. Participants should be able to skate the width of the ice unassisted before the start of the first Little Wild session.
Cost to participate in the program is $130, which includes the four one-hour sessions, a full set of custom-fit equipment and a ticket to a pre-season Minnesota Wild game.
The equipment set includes a helmet, gloves, shoulder pads, skates, hockey stick, elbow pads, hockey pants, shin guards, socks, Little Wild jersey and an equipment bag.
“For families that have never tried hockey, purchasing all new equipment can be very costly,” said Georgia Heller, community relations and hockey partnerships coordinator at the Minnesota Wild. “The purpose of the Little Wild program is to help eliminate the barriers to entry by providing all necessary equipment and hands-on instruction at a low cost.”
Hosting the program at the Plymouth Ice Center is possible through a partnership with Wayzata Youth Hockey Association, which pays for ice time to help introduce the game of hockey to new children in the community.
Registration for the Little Wild Learn to Play program begins at 10 a.m. Monday, May 20. To register, visit wild.com/littlewild. For more information about the program, call the Minnesota Wild at 651-312-3443 or email email@example.com.
