Starting in January, the Thunderbirds will be running a six week introductory program as part of the Vancouver Canucks Learn to Play program. We are excited to add this initiative to the Thunderbirds lineup and we look forward to inviting new players who will be eligible for our Hockey 1-3 age groups next season to join.

This program is geared for new to hockey players who have some basic skating skills and who live within the Thunderbirds boundary. We ask that all participants that are interested in joining fill out a short interest submission form and, if they meet these criteria, we will provide the link and code to officially register. We will accept players on a first come first served basis so it is important to submit your interest form as that will be what we base the order from.

More information on the Canucks Learn to Play program can be found here. Please note that you need to have the code from us before you can sign up for the event, so do not try to register on their site until you have been accepted through our office and provided with the unique code before you can click on their big “Sign up to Play” button.

If you know a player in Vancouver who wants to learn to play hockey, get a chance to meet a Canuck alumni – or maybe even Finn – be sure to get them to sign up!
