About the Program and Participating Locations & Times

The Florida Panthers in conjunction with the NHL, NHLPA and USA Hockey will be hosting "Florida Panthers Learn To Play" for boys and girls ages 5-9. All registrants must be first time ice hockey participants and have never been registered with USA hockey. The program was developed in an effort to reduce cost barriers to ice hockey participation by providing free equipment. The Learn To Play program primary goal is to create the next generation of hockey players and fans who will remain engaged with the game throughout the rest of their lives.

Cost of entry is $175. Every participant will receive 6 weeks of on-ice training with Florida Panthers Alumni and USA Hockey Certified Coaches. Each participant will also be custom fitted for a full set of hockey equipment that they will use during the program and keep at the conclusion of the 6 weeks. 

The Florida Panthers Learn To Play curriculum is designed in conjunction with USA Hockey's "Gold Standard" which utilizes an age appropriate Long Term Athlete Development structure known as the American Development Model. This model ensures that the program structure is both fun AND effective.
