OJR Hockey Program

From the OJR Hockey Club: We are looking to introduce new players to this great sport and The Philadelphia Flyers are making it easier than ever to start.

Yes, hockey is fun

Yes, hockey builds physical skills and coordination

Yes, hockey is a great family activity you and your child can enjoy together

But there's a lot more to hockey.

Hockey builds confidence and character

Hockey teaches teamwork and sportsmanship

Hockey is membership in a community that lasts for life.

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, 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.

If your child is interested, please follow the link below to register to any of the Learn to Play groups being offered in our area. Hurry up as these fill up fast!
