The Pittsburgh Penguins youth initiative has become the standard for excellence in Learn to Play. The success of the Little Penguins Learn to Play ICe Hockey program along with the Penguins organization’s commitment to youth hockey in the region has led to an expansion of the Learn to Play Program into Dek Hockey. With assistance provided by the NHL Industry Growth Fund, approximately 1200 children will receive FREE head-to-toe hockey equipment. Each program will consist of Learn to Play sessions. Participating locations encourage kids, ages 4-9, to come try Dek Hockey! What’s included? Helmet, hockey stick, hockey gloves, shin guards, and a t-shirt. (Please choose equipment sizes carefully – no exchanges will be made.)
