Dallas Stars Learn To Play Program

What is Dallas Stars Learn to Play?

Learning to play hockey is more than just learning a game. More than skating, passing, and stick handling.  Hockey is about responsibility, respect, and teamwork.

As children learn the skills needed to succeed on the ice, they also build and solidify important character traits needed to succeed off the ice. With that in mind, the Learn to Play initiative was developed jointly by the National Hockey League and the National Hockey League Players’ Association to offer more families a chance to experience everything that makes youth hockey so rewarding.

Developed with the help of experts from USA Hockey and Hockey Canada, the Learn to Play initiative aims to be the gold standard for youth hockey programs with the goal of inspiring more families to join the hockey community. Learn to Play changes the way youth hockey is offered by providing first-time participants, free head-to-toe equipment, weekly sessions of age-appropriate on-ice instruction, and certified coaching, led by National Hockey League Alumni, in a fun and safe atmosphere. Learn to Play on-ice instruction plans have been developed in collaboration with experts from USA Hockey and Hockey Canada and taught by certified instructors and led by National Hockey League Alumni.

Program Fees

The program provides FREE head-to-toe equipment for your child to keep as they continue exploring youth hockey and 6 weeks of on ice sessions. However, there is a participation fee associated with the program which offsets ice and coaching expenses.

Cost: $199.00 + processing fee

This is for FIRST TIME participants only. We encourage participants to have skating skills through Learn to Skate Basic 2, but it's not required.  If you have participated in the Learn To Play program before, you may not register again.
