Learning to play hockey is more than just learning the game. More than skating, passing and stick-handling, hockey is about responsibility, respect and teamwork. As children learn the skills need to succeed on the ice, they also build and solidify important character traits needed to succeed off the ice. With that in mind, the Little Ducks Hockey Initiation program was developed as part of the Learn to Play initiative, the joint effort by the National Hockey League and NHL Players' Association to offer more families a chance to experience everything that makes youth hockey so rewarding.
The Little Ducks Hockey Initiation program is a paid, six-week program that will provide more experienced skaters with Ducks branded equipment, on-ice sessions with professional coaching staffs and guest appearances from Anaheim Ducks alumni.
