Yes. We highly recommend skating lessons before the start of the Little Wild Program. Little Wild participants should be able to skate the width of the ice without assistance before their first Little Wild clinic. For further information on skating lessons, please check out your local community education or rinks for classes.

All coaches are USA Hockey certified ADM (American Development Model) coaches. Many are current Minnesota High School hockey coaches.
Welcome to the Little Wild team! You will receive an email from our program directing you to the next steps, including when, where, and how to get fitted at your local Pure Hockey store in full equipment.
Each site has a maximum of 65 participants. Should a cancellation arise, we will contact the next participant on the waitlist via email. Payment will be due upon acceptance.
We hope your child thoroughly enjoyed their experience with Little Wild and ask all graduates of the program to register with USA Hockey (free for kids 4-6, ages 7+ will pay a $50 annual membership fee) and their local association for organized hockey. If your child is not ready for a full season, we suggest further skating lessons to continue developing your skater’s ability and confidence on the ice.
