SIX-WEEK FREE LEARN-TO-PLAY HOCKEY PROGRAM FOR KIDS
**PLEASE NOTE: REGISTRATION WILL OPEN SOON FOR THE 2023-24 SESSIONS**
Tom’s Tykes program is returning once again! This year’s program is set to take place at our very own Veterans Memorial Coliseum and Winterhawks Skating Center.
Tom’s Tykes program allows children the amazing opportunity to try hockey for FREE for the first time. Tom’s Tykes will provide all the hockey gear and equipment so you can get involved with this amazing sport without all the initial stress. We encourage early registration once the registration period opens to secure your child(ren)’s spot because there are only 30 slots available per session.
This hockey experience provides 8-and-under kids seven (7), one-hour half-ice sessions, jerseys, gear, and the opportunity to work with Winterhawks players and staff. These sessions include on-ice drills, scrimmages, games, and much more.
ABOUT TOM GUSTAFSON: Tom, father of Winterhawks Associate Coach Kyle Gustafson, was the president of Portland Amateur Hockey Association and was responsible for the youth hockey league which would become the Portland Jr. Winterhawks. After Tom’s passing in 2019, Tom’s Tykes was established in his honor to help introduce the great game of hockey to Portland-area kids at no cost to them or their families.
WAIVER – Every child MUST fill out the waiver here to participate in every on-ice session.
