Learn to Play Hockey
Bird Arena's Learn to Play Hockey program is your player's perfect introduction to skating or to ice hockey.  No prior skating experience or equipment is needed; the loan of full hockey gear and skates is included in your fee. Fitted with full-gear, your player will soon discover that it doesn't hurt to fall. Focused on playing hockey, your player will quickly gain confidence and skill on the ice. Learn to Play Hockey and Try Hockey for Free are held at Bird Arena on the Ohio University Athens Campus.

At a Try Hockey for Free event, your player will be fitted for gear and skates, and will join Ohio University ice hockey players on the ice. No prior skating experience is needed. Try Hockey for Free, and register for the next Learn to Play Hockey session that night. Try Hockey for Free and Learn to Play Hockey are intended for players aged 10 and under; we work with older novice players to help them get started in other ways. 

Most players can begin practice with an Athens Youth Hockey Association team during or after their first session of Learn to Play Hockey.
