The Boston Bruins are excited to continue and grow the Bruins Academy Learn to Play Hockey Program (previously called "Little Bruins") to help aspiring, youth hockey players develop their skills. For the first time this season, the program is expanding to over 50 locations across New England. The program is available to boys and girls ages 4-9. For a registration fee of $100, the program includes a full free set of CCM equipment to keep valued at $500 retail, which includes skates, a professional personalized fitting, and four weeks of on-ice instruction led by certified coaches. The Boston Bruins are thrilled to share their passion for hockey with the next generation of hockey players.*

*Please note, skating lessons are highly recommended before the start of the Bruins Academy Learn to Play program. All children should be able to skate on their own, unaided. Please check in with your local rink on skating lessons before starting Bruins Academy Learn to Play program. In addition, this program is intended for children who have not participated in an organized hockey program before. Children that have registered with a Massachusetts Hockey association previously are not eligible to participate in Bruins Academy Learn to Play.
