The 2021-2022 season of the NHL/NHLPA First Shift runs from Fall 2021 until Spring 2022. Registration for all nationwide programs in this range can be seen below. Registration has been open since June, and due to the popularity of the program, some locations are now sold out. The next wave of programs, which will take place between Fall 2022 and Spring 2023, will be released on June 1, 2021.

If you have any questions regarding a specific program location, please contact the email listed on the “DETAILS” page.

Due to COVID-19, some of the local hockey associations listed below do not have the ability to book venues or ice times this far in advance. As a result, some of the details surrounding those specific programs are still blank.

If you would like to register your child in the program but are worried the schedule may not work for you once it becomes available, please note that we offer refunds up to 24 hours before the Welcome Event date (please note that a processing fee will be withheld).

Additionally, this season we are giving local hockey associations the ability to postpone their ice times at their discretion in the event of local health restrictions. Our goal is to give them the comfort to complete the program at their own pace if anything happens that is deemed unsafe. We hope that registered families can also remain flexible amidst the pandemic.
