The First Shift makes the hockey experience possible for everyone. We provide all the equipment and necessities for the program so all you have to do is show up and get involved. Our goal is to change the way hockey is offered to bring 1,000,000 new families into the sport worldwide over the next 10 years.
The First Shift gives children between the ages of 6-10 that have never played hockey before an introduction into the game, the equipment they need to get started and hands on experience with the game.
To get started and find a program near you, go the First Shift website, and enter your postal code. This will pull up programs near you. From there, you can fill out information to get on the pre-registration list, before you’re able to enter the program.
Here’s what one of our readers has to say: “We have a hockey obsessed kid. At nine, he’s never played any type of hockey in a formal setting, but was interested in getting started. The First Shift enabled us to get the programming to see if he was interested in moving forward with hockey, as well as a way to help cover the costs of the equipment. The registration fees covered the equipment, the hockey experience and helped us to know he wanted to move forward and enroll. Plus, he got to keep the equipment.”
