Ed Snider Youth Hockey & Education uses the sport of hockey to educate and empower under-resourced youth in Philadelphia. In alignment with our mission, we prioritize welcoming new registrants who live in the neighborhoods immediately surrounding our rinks and/or have limited access to high-quality after school programs.
All new students who pre-register will begin participating in our Learn to Skate Program, with no experience required! This program not only teaches students how to ice skate, but also teaches valuable Life Skills Lessons and invites students to develop a love of reading and learning.
