Kids Open Practice

Program Overview

The Kids Open Practice was introduced to give kids a behind-the-scenes look at the hardwork and teamwork needed to thrive in the NHL.


Student attend the annual Kids Open Practice

Every season, the Pittsburgh Penguins open up a select practice to students in Allegheny County. These students attend the practice inside of PPG Paints Arena, get an up-close look at their favorite players during drills and take home an activity book to further their hockey knowledge. This is a much-anticipated annual event by both the students and Penguins players - who look forward to the unending cheers from the youth in the crowd throughout the event.
