The Little Ducks Hockey Initiation Program is a six week introduction to hockey program. Participants will receive six hours of instruction on ice as well as a voucher, redeemable at any of our retailers for a free set of hockey equipment for the participant to keep. The voucher includes all equipment necessary in order to participate, thus should be redeemed before the start of the program. The program is six weeks long, with classes running once a week for one hour at a set day and time. The cost of the program is $150.
The program is taught by USA Hockey certified coaches, who will guide the participants through age appropriate activities in a safe and fun way. The program also features surprise visits from Ducks alumni to help the players develop their love for the sport. The Anaheim Ducks youth hockey program, consisting of The Rinks, the Anaheim Junior Ducks and the Lady Ducks, has earned designation as a USA Hockey Model Association.
For participants between the ages of four and eight, the mandatory USA Hockey Membership is included in the registration. Participants between the ages of nine and twelve will have to register for a USA Hockey membership here.
It is important to note that participants who have completed Learn to Play are still eligible for Little Ducks Hockey Initiation.
For children over the age of twelve, The Rinks offers a variety of youth hockey programs. More information can be found at www.therinks.com.
