Registration for the 2017-18 Bruins Academy Learn to Play Hockey Program (previously called "Little Bruins") is now open! Help your aspiring youth hockey players develop their hockey skills with new, fitted equipment worth $500 at retail and 4 weeks of professional, on-ice instruction. For the first time, the program is expanding to over 50 locations across New England. The program is available to boys and girls ages 4-9. All children should be able to skate on their own, yet not have participated in an organized hockey program before.
