Kids Hockey Clinics at Gila River Arena

DHD and Coyotes team up for FREE ball hockey at Gila River Arena

Desert Hockey Development was happy to have FREE events in the arena where the Coyotes play last year and we’re honored to have been invited back this summer to do it again.

Coyotes-Hockey-DevelopmentWe have five events scheduled at Gila River Arena this summer. They are all on Saturdays beginning June 6. Sign up for our mailing list to be notified of changes and upcoming events.


Kids four to fourteen are encouraged to attend. We’ll be playing ball hockey exactly where the Arizona Coyotes play, it’s a real thrill. No equipment or prior experience is necessary.

Kids should wear sneakers and be prepared for physical activity. We’ll make sure they stay hydrated.

Our coaches are the best, they will split the kids up into logical groups based on age, size, and prior experience. Boredom is not something we like, so all the kids will be busy and having fun doing different things. So, if you have somebody in your family that’s a hockey wizard or has never played hockey, bring him or her along.

We stress safety and sportsmanship, developing skills and techniques is secondary. We always finish up with a scrimmage where EVERYBODY gets to play.

We have a limit of eighty three (83) kids per clinic. Inclusion in the hockey activities is on a first-come first-served basis, so we recommend pre-registration (using the form below) and arrival at least 1/2 hour before the gates open.

We meet at Gate 3 on the north side of the building (facing Westgate “Fountain Park”). The doors usually remain locked until just before the event begins.

If your children are interested in playing on a team (we will match skill levels) for all five event dates, we have the Coyotes Summer Ball Hockey League on the same days just for you! Check it out!

We hope to see you there!
