This MLSE LaunchPad Ball Hockey program provides newcomers with a positive and safe ball hockey experience. Children and youth will participate in a learn-to-play program designed to introduce beginners to basic ball hockey skills. Through this program, we hope to grow the game of hockey and encourage participation throughout the City of Toronto. In addition to these sport-specific skills, we also aim to empower newcomers by improving a number of life-skills, including resiliency, confidence, teamwork and problem solving. This program is an NHL/NHLPA World Cup of Hockey Legacy Project.
