Youth Hockey Leagues

Little Preds (Ages 4 to 9)

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.

PREDecessor – Learn to Play (Ages 4 to 14)


PREDecessor is designed for boys and girls ages 4 to 14 years old who can skate on their own, while Learn-To-Play covers beginners through age 14.  Each 6-week session is just $99.00.  Participants may repeat PREDecessor multiple times if necessary.  These classes are perfect for Little Preds graduates who aren’t quite ready for house league or simply older skaters who would like some more time and instructions.  Full hockey equipment is required; skate rental options are available if needed.

Your child must have some skating experience prior to joining this class. Cool Sports requires a  “Learn to Skate” class or Little Preds class as a prerequisite for joining if you have no prior experience in order to maximize development and enjoyment.

Cool Sports will accept new players into this program at any time on a drop-in basis numbers permitting also, please email us for details.
