What is an Esso Fun Day?
Esso Fun Day programs are designed to familiarize beginners to hockey with basic skills in a fun, positive and welcoming environment at no cost to the first-time participant. It enables participants to become contributing members of a team effort, experience team spirit, develop self-confidence and experience a sense of achievement.
Programs can be delivered to girls and women of all ages, including the Hockey Canada Timbits U7 Program, so players can experience the sport early and enjoy the game for a lifetime.
From season to season, Hockey Canada supports a limited number of Esso Fun Day programs. As the game has evolved, so too has the program. There are now nearly 100 programs hosted from coast to coast to coast each year, equating to over 1,800 new players introduced to the game annually
