Learning to play hockey is more than just learning a game. More than skating, passing and stick-handling, hockey is about responsibility, respect and teamwork. Developed with the help of the experts from USA Hockey, the Learn to Play initiative aims to be the gold standard for youth hockey programs with the goal of inspiring more families to join the jockey community. Revolution’s Learn to Play program changes the way youth hockey is offered by providing first time participants head-to-toe equipment, weekly practice sessions of age appropriate on-ice instruction and certified coaching in a fun and safe atmosphere.

Participants must have basic skating skills and are required to have completed Snowplow Sam levels 1 through 4, Learn to Skate Basic Skills levels 1 through 3, or have been a previous Learn to Play participant.
