USA Hockey has some pretty great resources created to help the first-time parents with questions they may have about hockey. Check it out here!
First, it's never too late for your child to start playing hockey, but we do recommend an earlier than later start. Third grade and younger is ideal but we have had players as old as 7th grade play for the first time. Previous skating experience helps, but is not required. All players will go through tryouts. The goal of these tryouts is to place your skater on a team with other similar ability skaters so they can work with kids that are at a relatively same level of play. There are no "cuts".
One Goal Equipment is available for the players to use during their Intro to Hockey session. This includes helmet with face protection, shoulder pads, elbow pads, breezers (hockey bottoms), gloves, shin pads, bag. WFHA also provides socks and jerseys for the Intro sessions. Skates, stick and mouthguard are not included.
Cost: $25 for 4 on ice sessions
Location: Veterans Arena 1201 7th Ave East West Fargo, ND
