We had to bump the date out about a month for our Spring Try Hockey for Free event as we have multiple End of Season (Eos) events for both the Scorpions and Cougars that weekend. (The National THFF event was 3/5/22)

We are set for Saturday, 4/2/22 from 2:00-3:00pm for our THFF event, along with our Annual Coaches vs. Varsity hockey game after from 3:15-4:15pm (stay to watch some hockey!). 

Tell your friends that might want to try ice hockey to do it for FREE!  Targeting ages 4-9 but anyone under 15 that wants to try is welcome.

Please plan to arrive around 1:30pm to get skates and prepare to get on the ice at 2pm!

Try Hockey for Free (THFF) is a joint initiative between USA Hockey and the National Hockey League. This event is designed to provide kids ages 4 to 9 the opportunity to try hockey in a FUN, safe environment with trained coaching staff.

More details to come, but outside of the ball hockey portion (so far...), we're hoping to match the on-ice details we had at the last THFF event on November 5th/6th, 2021:


November 2021:

We added an OFF-Ice Try Ball Hockey for Free event on Friday, November 5th at the MAC on one of the basketball courts from 4:30-6:30pm.  No registration is required for this event - just athletic shoes, shin guards (we should have some available as-needed) and a desire to try some hockey off the ice!

The next ON-ICE Try Hockey For Free (THFF) was Saturday, November 6th, 2021 at the MAC from 3:30-4:30pm, sponsored by USA Hockey!  


Bike helmets and winter gloves are perfect for this event! Once your child decides they want to register for the season NMAHA has a storage room of equipment that can help get them started.

We were excited to host the Arizona Coyotes here in Rio Rancho!

The Arizona Coyotes Youth Hockey Growth Program have initiated the Learn To Play Hockey NHL affiliated program to help emphasize the important values that hockey can provide for our youth.
