Since establishing the program in Fall 2006, more than 500 participants have graduated Predators' G.O.A.L! presented by Delta Dental of Tennessee, learning the basics of skating and ice hockey. On Tuesday, May 13 the most recent participants were treated to guest appearances featuring Preds forward J.P. Dumont and team mascot Gnash! While the focus was on skill development, Preds front office staff, Nashville Youth Hockey League instructors along with Pope John Paul II Knights hockey team coached the kids utilizing cross-ice stations working in small groups in a fun, rewarding atmosphere.

G.O.A.L! offers youngsters the opportunity to experience the excitement of hockey without the cost of purchasing equipment. Designed for boys and girls ages 4 to 9 with no prior experience, this free four-week ice hockey program introduces the exciting sport of hockey while teaching life experiences of teamwork, sportsmanship and self-confidence. Full equipment, including skate rental, is provided by the Predators at no cost to the participant, making the program ideal for any family!

As the local NHL team, the Predators are dedicated to supporting the development of hockey at all levels. The Preds recognize the need for local skating facilities to be accessible for beginners to help grow the sport, starting at the younger ages.

The next four-week session will begin June at Southern Ice Arena. Registration for the June session will open online on May 21st at 9:00 a.m. Space is limited. Please click here for more information.
