SUNRISE, Fla. - The Florida Panthers announced today they will be hosting the second season of "Florida Panthers Learn to Play" in conjunction with the NHL, the NHLPA and USA Hockey for boys and girls ages 5-9. All registrants must be first time hockey participants and have never been registered with USA hockey.
Each participant in the Learn to Play program will receive six weeks on on-ice training with Florida Panthers Alumni and USA Hockey Certified Coaches. The participants will receive a full set of custom fitted hockey equipment they will be able to keep at the completion of the program. The cost of the program is $150.
The following five rinks are participating Learn to Play locations: Florida Panthers IceDen (Coral Springs), Glacier Ice & Snow Arena (Pompano Beach), Kendall Ice Arena (Miami), Palm Beach Ice Works (West Palm Beach) and Palm Beach Skate Zone (Lake Worth).
The Learn to Play program was developed in an effort to reduce cost barriers to ice hockey participation by providing equipment. The primary goal is to create the next generation of hockey players and fans who remain engaged with the game throughout their lives. All participants will be automatically registered with USA Hockey for the 2017-2018 season allowing for an easier and less expensive transition into future hockey programs.
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.
Registration will open on Wednesday, May 24. Please visit www.floridapanthers.com/learntoplay for more information and to sign up.
