The Little Wings Program


Little Wings is an excellent program sponsored by the Detroit Red Wings. The program fee covers both the LEARN TO PLAY on-ice instructional program as well as all of your equipment. If you already own equipment, the Learn to Play registration is less expensive and is the same program just at a reduced cost because it doesn't include equipment. (See Below)

This program is for children ages 5-9. Participants must register online through the Little Wings program here. This program includes a 6-week session and full hockey equipment. The cost includes both the class and the equipment.

Learn To Play

If you have your own equipment or don't want to go through the Little Wings program, you can register as a Learn to Play participant. It is the same program in terms of on-ice instruction, but with a cheaper cost for those who may already have equipment. 

For those who have their own equipment or have already participated in the Little Wings program.
