Since 2010, the Michigan Amateur Hockey Association has  provided Try Hockey For Free Clinics throughout the state of Michigan. Local associations host these one-day growth events at no cost to participants, in an effort to allow boys and girls to try the sport of ice hockey. 

Visit your local association or rink to find out when their next Try Hockey For Free event will be held!


Hockey Builds Confidence - Hockey helps develop a positive attitude, self-image and self-esteem. There's nothing like ice to teach kids about standing on their own two feet. 

Hockey Builds Mental Agility - Decision-making, strategy, concentration — hockey teaches kids a lot more than how to skate.

Hockey Develops Social Skills - It takes cooperation, teamwork and respect to succeed on and off the ice. Hockey teaches those skills, while also creating new friendships.

Hockey is for EVERYONE! - USA Hockey has a place for everyone to play. Hockey players come in all shapes, sizes, colors, and creeds. 

Hockey Teaches Persistence - Everyone stumbles on occasion, but hockey players always get back on their feet.

Screening a Goalie is Better Than Screen Time - Hockey gives children an engaging, fast-paced, healthy alternative to sedentary recreation. Hockey develops unique physical literacy.
