The Carolina Hurricanes First Goal Program Assisted by Carvana is a partnership between the Carolina Hurricanes, the National Hockey League and the National Hockey League Players' Association in conjunction with the league-wide Learn To Play program. The initiative provides first-time participants (boys and girls) aged 5-9 with hockey equipment as well as the opportunity to enjoy instructional hockey sessions.

Participants are introduced to the game of hockey by Hurricanes alumni and receive brand-new, Hurricanes-branded CCM equipment, fitted by Pure Hockey, including: 

Helmet Shoulder, Elbow, & Shin Pads Gloves
Pants Socks Skates
Equipment Bag Jersey Stick

The weekly Learn-to-Play sessions take place in July and August over a six-week span. Also, each participant receives two tickets to a Hurricanes home game (date TBD), a Hurricanes Hockey Kids Club membership, and a graduation certificate. Once the program is complete, families are given next-step opportunities for their new hockey players to continue learning the game!

Rinks we will be visiting in year four of this program: Polar Ice House locations in Cary, Garner and Wake Forest, Polar Ice Plex, Orange County Sportsplex in Hillsborough, Cleland Ice Rink at Ft. Bragg, Greensboro Ice House, Bojangles Coliseum in Charlotte (sessions held in September/October), and the Wilmington Ice House (sessions held in September/October).
