Rink Rats

The Rink Rats program provides opportunities for more children to learn about the great game of hockey. The program focus is for kids who wouldn't normally be exposed to the game, and the program is a core part of the HBF's mission to grow the game of hockey.

 The students participate after school at local outdoor ice rinks from January until the ice melts, usually in late February.

The Rink Rats Program would not happen without the support of Minneapolis community services programs, the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board, the cooperation of Minneapolis Public Schools, the National Hockey League Players Association and the generous sponsorship of Morrie’s Automotive Group, which is providing the student transportation from the schools to the local parks in Minneapolis. Other sponsors include Dave’s Sport Shop, the Butzow Foundation, the Minnesota Wild Foundation, Let’s Play Hockey, RBC Wealth Management, and the Minneapolis Police Activities League program.
