Learn to Play Programs

Little Blues (Learn to Play)

In conjunction with the St. Louis Blues, Centene Community Ice Center is pleased to host the Little Blues Program. The St. Louis Blues have partnered with the NHL and NHLPA to provide a low cost seven-week program for kids to experience hockey for the first time through the Little Blues Learn-To-Play program.

This seven-week introduction to hockey program is intended for boys and girls ages 4 - 9 who have not participated in organized ice hockey before. All sessions will take place at Centene Community Ice Center, the official practice facility of the Blues. Two Little Blues sessions per year will take place at one of the local Illinois rinks.

The Little Blues program cost is $225 per child and includes six weeks of on ice practices taught by Blues Alumni, a Little Blues graduation and a complete set of hockey equipment! 

This program is intended for children who have not participated in an organized hockey program before - children who have registered with a local Missouri Hockey association previously are not eligible to participate in this program.

Equipment Kit: Jersey, Shoulder Pads, Gloves, Elbow Pads, Hockey Pants, Helmet, Shin guards, Hockey Socks, Hockey Stick, Skates & Equipment Bag.  All included in the price.

Skating lessons are highly recommended before the start of the Little Blues Program.
