Top Flight Programs

The Anaheim Ducks and The Rinks are teaming up to provide everyone with an opportunity to play hockey! Launched in 2013, The Top Flight program presented by CHOC Children's started as a street hockey league designed for special needs individuals of all ages and abilities. It has since expanded to include street hockey, ice skating, ice hockey, as well as various free events throughout the year for the special needs community.
