First Strides

The Program

Make friends, have fun and develop your skills! Canucks First Strides, presented by Chevrolet, provides a great opportunity for minor hockey initiation/novice players and coaches to develop their skills, while skating alongside a Vancouver Canucks player at Rogers Arena.

The program is open to all registered BC Hockey initiation/novice players and goalies aged six to eight. For each single-day event, 80 boys and girls (72 players and 8 goaltenders) will be randomly selected among the applicants.

Meeting at Rogers Arena, local minor hockey association coaches will work side by side with qualified BC Hockey course conductors to teach young players the first strides in becoming accomplished athletes, as well as quality individuals off the ice.
