Hockey Alberta is excited to host a Canadian Tire First Shift program in Red Deer this fall.

The First Shift is a truly unique experience designed to help your child, aged 6-10, fall in love with hockey before you buy all the gear. The six-week learn to play program focuses on having fun while learning basic skills. Registration is just $199, which includes full head-to-toe equipment.

The Red Deer First Shift program begins on October 24.

The First Shift’s mission is to change the way hockey is offered, to inspire new families to join our community and enroll their kids in our sport. Because we believe in all that hockey has to offer kids, their families and our communities, we designed The First Shift to break down barriers to entry by offering a program that is accessible, affordable, and most importantly, fun!
