7th Annual Free Intro to Hockey Clinic
September 16th, 17th and 18th - At the Rochester Arena

Clinic Overview:
Rochester Youth Hockey (RYH) is pleased to be hosting our 7th annual Free Intro to Hockey Clinic. This clinic offers children, ages 4 thru 8, who have never played hockey or even skated before, an opportunity to try this great sport. Our goal is to give the children a fun first-time hockey experience while still learning fundamental skills.
The clinic is limited to 50 participants and will provide FREE use of all equipment including skates, stick and a jersey.
On-ice instruction is led by RYH Coaches and will include fun activities to get the children comfortable on the ice.
RYH Board Members will be at the arena, throughout the clinic, to answer any questions that you may have about the clinic, hockey in general or about any of the 2016/2017 RYH programs that we offer.
As in previous years, we had a strong turnout in 2015 and many of the first time players used their new hockey skills to progress onto higher level teams. RYH strongly believes that the Intro Program gives first-time players a solid foundation and confidence to advance.

Clinic Dates, Times & Schedule:

4:00-4:45 PM Check-in

Who can attend?

Boys and girls ages 4-8 who are new to hockey.
We do, however, ask for a deposit for the Learn-to-play EQUIPMENT package provided by RYH through Pure Hockey. Deposits are $180.00* for the 4 to 6 year old package and $200.00* for the 7 to 8 year old the package.
*Please note that the equipment package typically fits these age groups, however if your child doesn't fit into the standard equipment packages additional cost may apply.
If after the clinic your child joins RYH, you simply keep the equipment. If your child does not sign up for a RYH program, the Deposit will be returned once all equipment has been returned to RYH. If you only need certain equipment, the deposit will be adjusted accordingly.


If you are interested, please email Jeremy Connelly at to reserve your child’s spot.
Remember, the clinic is limited to the first 50 participants and the slots do fill up quickly. Once your child is on the list, you will receive additional information including the schedule for your child’s equipment fitting.
