Registration open for Capitals Learn to Play program

Registration for the National Hockey League and National Hockey League Players Association’s Capitals Learn to Play program is underway.

Open to first-time participants, the LTP initiative provides free head-to-toe equipment to children ages four to eight in an effort to reduce cost barriers associated with an introductory program.

Equipment kits include a Capitals branded helmet, shoulder pads, elbow pads, gloves, pants, shin pads, socks, skates, jersey, stick and equipment bag.

The program will be held at 23 area rinks, including Ashburn Ice House, beginning in September. Instruction will be provided by Capitals alumni and USA Hockey certified instructors.

"The D.C. region has witnessed fantastic growth in youth hockey participation over the past several years,” Washington Capitals owner Ted Leonsis said. “I am pleased by the Capitals, NHL and NHLPA’s efforts to continue to grow the game and engage new participants through the LTP initiative."
