First Shift being offered in the County!
Submitted By Heather Zantingh on Wed 07 14, 21
Prince Edward County Minor Hockey is pleased to announce, in conjunction with the NHL and the Ottawa Senators, that we will be offering a First Shift program again the Fall of 2021.



The NHL/NHLPA FIRST SHIFT program is designed to ensure a positive experience for new-to-hockey families. We want families to experience the game at its best — to understand why so many Canadians feel an inherent love for the sport, and to stimulate a desire for continued participation. We want to take away any intimidation as it relates to equipment requirements, and/or rules of the game, remove potential safety concerns, and most importantly, provide an experience that is memorable and fun.

The NHL/NHLPA First Shift is open to children ages 6-10*, who have never previously enrolled in minor hockey within Canada or the NHL/NHLPA First Shift program.

*To be eligible to participate, children must be born between January 1, 2011 and May 1st, 2016.

PARTICIPANT REGISTRATION FEE OF $229 INCLUDES:BAUER Equipment (Head-to-Toe)
Welcome Event, Equipment fitting, demonstration, Expert fit session and equipment distribution.
