First Goal Foundation
Where Kids Succeed On and Off the Ice

Many Chicago neighborhoods are filled with kids who do not have the opportunity to play hockey or figure skating due to the high-cost of ice time, equipment and coaches. We want to fix that by providing Chicago youth, ages 4 to 14, access to a safe environment, equipment and coaches who want to share their love of hockey and figure skating.

Our Youth Programs Include

Learn to Skate
Kids new to skating will learn 
the fundamentals needed to feel comfortable and confident on the ice.
Hockey On Your Block
Kids interested in hockey will be 
taught the skills, the rules and the sportsmanship needed to play the coolest game on the planet.
Go Figure
Kids interested in figure skating will be taught the skills, the techniques and the discipline it takes to be a competitor.
