USA Hockey's Try Hockey For Free Days are designed to provide youth hockey associations with a national platform to introduce new kids to the sport. The upcoming national events for the 2021-22 season are November 6th, 2021 and March 5th, 2022.
Traditionally this opportunity has been offered to children between the ages of 4 and 9, but you are welcome to customize your event for various disciplines and age categories. 

November offers associations the opportunity to invite players to try hockey early in the hockey season while they still might have an opportunity to join a team or learn to play program. March provides a great opportunity to attract new families who are thinking about hockey following the 2022 Winter Olympics. 

Facilities who wish to host a USA Hockey Try Hockey For Free event must intend to register their participants in a USA Hockey sanctioned program.

If your association is looking to host a Try Hockey For Free event on a date outside the National events, please select "Custom Event Date" in the Event Date field. All Try hockey events will be vetted by USA Hockey’s Program Services team and you will be notified of approval or contacted for additional information.

*Custom event dates are not eligible to receive giveaways from USA Hockey, however, you will still have access to marketing materials. Custom event dates will utilize a direct registration link for participant registration, as the events are not searchable on the map at www.TryHockeyForFree.com. You will be sent your direct event link as well as how to sign into the system.
