Penguins Try Hockey for Free

The Pittsburgh Penguins are excited to announce the launch of our newest youth hockey initiative Penguins Try Hockey for Free!

With support of the National Hockey League's Industry Growth Fund, the Pittsburgh Penguins have provided 25 local partner rinks with 50 sets of brand new hockey gear! The gear will be used by children ages 4 to 9, learning the sport of ice hockey for free on one of four yearly Try Hockey for Free days.

The new initiative will encompass USA Hockey's Try Hockey for Free days in November and March, and will add new Penguins specific programming dates in April and September, for a total of four Try Hockey for Free days.

The sport of hockey has had tremendous growth in Western Pennsylvania and initiatives such as Try Hockey For Free will allow even more children to get involved. Together with the addition of the Learn to Play Dek program, the Penguins Try Hockey for Free program will help build the bridge and transition youth participants from the dek to the ice!

Please find our upcoming Try Hockey for Free events below!
