Pittsburgh Penguins Learn to Play Dek Hockey Program

The Pittsburgh Penguins are pleased to announce the launch of the Learn to Play Dek Hockey program for its first season!

The Pittsburgh Penguins youth initiative has become the standard for excellence in learn to play. The success of the Little Penguins Learn to Play ice hockey program along with the Penguins organization's commitment to youth hockey in the region has led to an expansion of the Learn to Play program into dek hockey. With assistance provided by the NHL Industry Growth Fund, approximately 800 children will receive FREE head-to-toe dek hockey equipment. After launching in the spring of 2018, the program will continue with a summer session. Each program will consist of six learn to play sessions designed to introduce beginners to the sport of dek hockey in a fun and safe environment. Participating locations encourage kids, ages 4 to 9, to come try dek hockey!

What's included?

  • Helmet
  • Hockey Stick
  • Hockey Gloves
  • Shin guards
  • Learn to Play T-Shirt
