PLEASE NOTE:

Online registration begins on Tuesday, November 3, 2015 at 10 AM exclusively at www.pittsburghpenguins.com/littlepenguins.

PLEASE REFRESH INTERNET BROWSER AT 10 AM.

Once registration opens, it will NOT refresh on its own.

Registration MUST be completed online – phone and/or registration at individual rinks will NOT be accepted.

Please review the following suggestions prior to the registration start date of Tuesday, November 3, 2015:
  • Review the list of participating ice arenas and select your location preference
  • To be fair to everyone and to make the program available to the widest range of participants, multiple registrations are not permitted.
  • In the event that registration is sold out at your preferred location and you are unable to register, you may then try to register at another location.
  • 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 an opening becomes available, you may be contacted.
  • If your child does not know how to skate, we highly recommend that your sign up for a “Learn to Skate” class at a local rink. Most of the rinks listed below have such programs. Click on the “view website” link for any rink to learn more.

Once your child’s Little Penguins registration is complete, parents will then be required to register their child for USA Hockey. A link will be provided. USA Hockey offers free registration for children, ages 4-6. A modest fee may be charged for older children.

Children who previously participated in the Sidney Crosby’s Little Penguins Learn to Play Hockey program are not eligible to participate in this season’s program.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to cotact us at littlepenguins@pittsburghpenguins.com.
