If you live in Canada then your kids should play hockey – that is what my husband thinks. If you have kids from 6-10 years old then you should check out this great program.
Their mission is to change the way hockey is offered to bring 1 million new families into the sport globally over the next 10 years. Because they believe in all hockey has to offer kids, their families and their communities, they designed The CANADIAN TIRE First Shift to break down barriers to entry by offering a program that is accessible, affordable, and most importantly, fun! Join us! They can’t wait to help your kids fall in love with hockey too.
The Canadian Tire First Shift makes the hockey experience possible for everyone. They provide all the equipment and necessities for the program so all you have to do is show up and get involved. Their goal is to change the way hockey is offered to bring 1,000,000 new families into the sport worldwide over the next 10 years.
The registration fee is $199 and includes Bauer Equipment head to toe.
The Canadian Tire First Shift is a program designed to ease kids and their families into the sport of hockey in a fun and friendly environment. We begin with a Welcome Event offering information and activities to help build kids’ confidence and make them, and their parents, more comfortable in the hockey environment. There are 6 sessions – one per week on the same day, at the same time to make it convenient for parents to schedule. The focus of the on ice sessions is fun, teaching kids basic skating and fundamental hockey skills through play.
Your son or daughter will have fun! In addition, participants will move at their own pace, through fundamental skating and hockey skills. The program runs 6 sessions, which allows kids time to build confidence and improve in order to experience a sense of achievement.
