1st Stride Roller Hockey Program

Coming NEW to the public this fall the Arizona Coyotes will be launching their 1st Stride Roller hockey program hosted in cooperation with the Arizona Coyotes Hockey Development Program, the National Hockey League, USA Hockey, Behind the Mask and local hockey rinks.

The program consists of eight (8) 45 minute sessions focusing on fundamental skills designed to provide kids (aged 5-9) an introduction to the sport of hockey.

NEW this season we have two low cost options for you too choose from.

1 - $60 – includes a Jersey and Little Howlers branded stick

2 - $120 - equipment includes everything your child needs to get started-shin pads, gloves, elbow pads, helmet, jersey and a stick.

BOTH options will receive rental roller hockey skates & pants.

More information regarding a fitting will be sent out closer to the start of the programs. 

The classes will be taught by Arizona Coyotes learn to play instructors as well as other roller hockey coaches from around the valley.

At the conclusion of the program, parents are given information about an intro to hockey league put on by the Coyotes at the local rinks. Kids will have one practice per week and a small cross rink game once a week. Cross rink games will be used to enhance the players development and allow for more touches on the puck and more involvement in the game.

In an effort to help spark the growth of youth hockey across North America, the NHL, USA Hockey, Hockey Canada and Behind the Mask Hockey Shops have worked together to fund head to toe equipment for kids to KEEP in conjunction with the new and improved Arizona Coyotes Little Howlers Hockey program.
