Welcome to the 2023-24 PPS All-Stars Program!

Through free and discounted tickets, mentorship, and scholarships, the PPS All-Stars program provides opportunities for students to reach their full potential both on and off the ice. The Penguins are using the power of hockey to invest in the Pittsburgh community. PPS All-Stars through its three pillars, deepens our existing relationship with Pittsburgh Public Schools and adds to our free learn-to-skate and diversity hockey programs at the Highmark Hunt Armory community rink.

The Pillars: 1) help youth experience the thrill of live hockey; 2) learn valuable life skills and explore career pathways through mentorship; and 3) receive financial support for college.

The free-ticketing program kicks off this preseason, with an invitation for Pre-K through 12 PPS students to attend a PPS All-Stars Game on September 24, 28, or October 4.

Eligible PPS students may redeem two (2) complimentary tickets to the above noted games with digital food and drink vouchers provided on gameday, courtesy of Aramark.

We look forward to seeing you at PPG Paints Arena!
