The most basic element of the Florida Girls Hockey program is to expose young females to the game of hockey. Building their interest requires the support of hockey associations and ice centers around Florida. Below is a list of upcoming Learn to Play Hockey programs and grass roots events that are happening in the near future at our local ice rinks around Florida.
CALENDAR OF UPCOMING LEARN TO PLAY EVENTS FOR GIRLS

Florida Panthers Learn to Play - 6-week sessions starting May 18, 2019
After girls become interested in hockey and they become integrated into their local rink's programming, then they become ready to participate in hockey clinics focused on girls athletic growth. This involves learning the technical skills of the game including skating, stick-handling and game play, but also learning in a female environment where they learn other social skills and begin to build a network of other girls that love the game of hockey just like they do. Below is a list of Girls Hockey Clinics scheduled around Florida.
CALENDAR OF UPCOMING GIRLS CLINICS
Nov 17 - Tampa Bay Lighting Girls Street Hockey Clinic from 2-4pm (2 age levels) at the Campo Family YMCA in Valrico. Please direct any questions to Sara Bustad at email@example.com.
