We first published the details on Try Ice Hockey for Free Day in 2013. We continue to update this multiple times a year as new dates are added.
In the colder months, we focus our attention on indoor sports and activities for our families. Saturday, February 22, 2020, USA Hockey and over 500 local programs across the country will encourage kids, ages 4 to 9, to come to a local participating rink and participate in a try ice hockey for free day as part of Hockey Week Across America.
New Jersey has listed locations for Try Ice Hockey for Free events (see below – this article is being updated for 2/22/20). Be sure to register prior by visiting Try Ice Hockey For Free as all locations have a limited amount of equipment available for use. There you can find the closest location to you.
Kids should have some comfort on the ice – there are no skating lessons that day, only hockey instruction.
Parents are not allowed on the ice.
Grab your coat, gloves and hat and bring the kids for a day full of ice hockey fun. What a great, FREE way to try something new! Read our post from a previous Try Ice Hockey for Free event. It is a great time!
