Youth Hockey Leagues

Little Preds (Ages 4 to 9)

This program is currently ON HOLD due to CV19 please check back for updates periodically or follow us on Facebook.

Cool Sports is proud to partner with the NHL and the Nashville Predators for a youth hockey program for beginners ages 4 through 9.  The “Little Preds” program is the most easy, fun and affordable way to get your son or daughter started in hockey, without having to make a large financial investment.

Once a week, for 14 weeks, this program combines skating fundamentals, grass roots hockey development lessons, and tons of fun to help your little players find a love for the game!  For just $150.00, your child will receive an entire set of custom fit “Preds” hockey gear, a graduation pizza party with giveaway swag bags, a membership to the Predators Kids Club, a USA Hockey membership number valid for 1 year, and 14 weeks of instruction.  This program is a great value!  The total estimated value of everything listed above, if purchased separately, is almost $1000!

Please note: the dates for the program listed on the registration page are for the hockey practices only, the 8 week skating classes are run separately by Cool Sports prior to the hockey class but are included in the overall program price.
