The St. Louis Blues have partnered with the NHL and NHLPA to create Little Blues, a low-cost learn-to-play program to allow kids to experience hockey for the first time.
This seven-week introduction to hockey program is intended for children ages 4-9 that have not participated in organized youth hockey before. Children who have registered with a local Missouri Hockey association previously are not eligible to participate in this program.
The Little Blues program cost is $200 per child and includes on-ice practices taught by Blues radio broadcaster Joey Vitale, a Little Blues graduation and a complete set of hockey equipment. Skating lessons are highly recommended before the start of the Little Blues Program.
All sessions will take place at the Centene Community Ice Center, the official practice facility of the Blues.
Once registered, participants will attend a Pure Hockey equipment fitting event three weeks prior to the first ice session. Properly fit equipment is important for comfort, performance, & safety!
