The Rinks Try Skating for Free program offers first-time skaters the chance to get on the rink and learn how to skate for free! The three-week mini-Learn to Skate session will introduce skaters to the basics of skating - how to sit & stand up on the ice, marching & gliding - and to our professional skating staff.
In partnership with USA Hockey, The Rinks & Anaheim Ducks host two "Try Hockey for Free" days (February & November) and "Girls Try Hockey for Free" day (October).
Anaheim Ducks Learn to Play Hockey
The Anaheim Ducks Learn to Play Hockey program offers first-time hockey players the chance to get on the rink in full hockey equipment for free. They will receive four weeks of instruction on the basics of hockey. Equipment sizes are recommended for children ages 4 to 12. Basic skating skills strongly recommended.
Little Ducks is a paid, six-week program that will provide new players with on-ice sessions with professional coaches and Anaheim Ducks alumni! The Little Ducks program was developed as part of the National Hockey League's Learn to Play initiative, the joint effort by the NHL & NHL Players' Association (NHLPA) to make hockey more accessible. Basic skating skills required.
The Rinks offer a number of youth ice and inline recreational leagues for players of all ages and ability levels. The Rinks are recognized as a Model Club Association through USA Hockey and are dedicated to age-appropriate, age-specific skill development, in accordance with USA Hockey's American Development Model.
