The NHL/NHLPA First Shift is open to children, between the ages of 6 and 10 years old*, who have never previously enrolled in minor hockey within Canada or the NHL/NHLPA First Shift program.


  • Six on-ice sessions designed with fun drills and great instructors.
  • Sessions are always on the same day of the week, same time and same arena.
  • Participants will move at their own pace, through fundamental skating and hockey skills.
  • On-ice sessions allow kids time to build confidence and improve in order to experience a sense of achievement.

*To be eligible to participate, children must be born between January 1, 2014 and May 1, 2019.
