Please review the following suggestions prior to the registration start date of Tuesday, November 5, 2013:

  • Review the list of participating ice arenas and note your top 3 location preferences. In the event that registration is sold out at your preferred location, you may try to register at another location that is convenient for you. If all of your preferred locations are sold out before you are able to complete your registration, please complete the waiting list form. In the event that an opening becomes available at one of your preferred locations, you may be contacted.
  • If your child does not know how to skate, we highly recommend that you sign up for a “Learn to Skate” class at your local rink. To review a list of rinks with “Learn to Skate” classes, please click here.
  • Once the Sidney Crosby’s Little Penguins Learn to Play Hockey program registration is complete, parents will then be required to register their child for USA Hockey.
