Street Pride Overview

The NHL has organized a league-wide street hockey program, NHL Street, which provides schools and community centers with an athletic and educational program free of charge. The Nashville Predators would like to invite your school/community center to consider becoming a part of this exciting grassroots program locally through Nashville Predators Street Pride!

Street hockey is a dry land variation of ice hockey that can be played all year round.

  • Street hockey is played in sneakers, preferably indoors on a gymnasium surface or outdoors on a blacktop playground.
  • The NHL and the Nashville Predators will provide street hockey equipment (sticks, rubber pucks, no-bounce balls, nets, and protective goalie gear) to your school or community center, as well as start-up street hockey instruction for your coaching staff and administration.

We are committed not only to building an excellent team with positive role models for young people, but also to creating and maintaining community programs that encourage active participation in our sport and serve to educate today's youth. Street Pride allows us to do that. This structured street hockey program will enable schools or community centers to expand their recreational programs and provide kids with an opportunity to learn and participate in a new activity.

The Preds seek schools and community centers that will actively incorporate Street Pride into their curriculum. To aid this effort, we hope you will provide us with essential information about your school or community center by filling out the Street Pride application at Due to tremendous interest in the program, we urge you to complete and return this application as soon as possible.

We are certain that Nashville Predators Street Pride would be a successful addition to your school or community center's youth activities and we hope your administration will join us by taking action immediately to make this program a reality. We look forward to working with you and your local school or community center on this and future projects.
