All Little Preds Learn to Play participants will receive a 2016-17 Nashville Predators Kids Club membership! This season-long membership includes a GNASH drawstring, GNASH doll, Kids Club Flag and a ticket to a Preds game!

This program is intended for children who have not participated in an organized hockey program before. Children who have previously registered with a local program in their area previously are not eligible to participate in the program.*

Skating lessons are highly recommended before the start of the Little Preds Program. Little Preds participants should be able to skate the width of the ice without falling before they come to the first Little Preds session. For more information on Learn to Skate classes, please check out the programs offered at your local ice rink.

Once registered, participants will attend a mandatory Equipment Fitting Event at their local rink. Properly fit equipment is important for comfort, performance, and safety! More information on the Equipment Fitting Event will be communicated in your registration confirmation email.

*If the Nashville Predators become aware that a registered child has previous hockey league/program experience, the child will be removed from the Little Preds program and the guardians will be charged the full retail price for the equipment.

This program will be offered from October 2016 - July 2017. If the session you are interested in is full, sign up for the waitlist and be sure to check back at this website for upcoming dates and registration.
