The Minnesota Wild, in partnership with Minnesota Hockey, Pure Hockey, the NHL, and the NHLPA announced today that registration for the 2023 Little Wild Learn To Play Program will open at 10 a.m. CT on Monday, May 22 at www.wild.com/littlewild. The 2023 Little Wild Learn To Play Program will host 21 sessions across the State of Hockey including the second annual all-girls session at TRIA Rink in St. Paul.
The Little Wild Learn To Play Program is for first-time boys and girls hockey players. Eligible participants must be between the ages of 5-8 as of Sept. 1, 2023. The maximum number of participants per location is 60.
The program is intended for children who have not participated in organized youth hockey programs before or are planning to participate for the first time during the 2023-24 season. Children who have previously participated in the Little Wild Program are not eligible to participate again. Those in violation of this rule will not be able to participate and their registration fees will not be refunded.
For $180, participants will receive four, one-hour on-ice sessions led by the Minnesota Hockey American Development Model team and a full set of hockey equipment. Kids who do not have skating experience are strongly encouraged to take skating lessons prior to their first Little Wild on-ice session if possible.
All equipment fittings for the 2023 Little Wild Program will be held in person at a Pure Hockey location. Registered participants will receive an email with information on equipment fitting dates and times at a Pure Hockey location.
All participants will be invited to attend a preseason Minnesota Wild game at Xcel Energy Center during the 2023-24 season. Little Wild participants will each receive a FREE ticket to the game and have the option to purchase additional tickets through a special ticket offer.
