Getting Started in Youth Hockey
Getting into the game is an exciting adventure from finding a rink in your neighborhood to selecting properly fitted equipment and going to the rink for the first time. Here is an easy checklist on how to get started with hockey.
- Find your local youth hockey program in CT and contact them to see if they are offering any opportunities to try hockey. If they do not offer a test drive for hockey, inquire about "learn to play" or learn to skate programs.
- Get equipped: Some rinks offer rental/lender equipment sets. Ask regarding availability before purchasing equipment. If you need to purchase equipment, find your local hockey retailer.
- Get ready to have some fun!
