Skate with Team USA on Sunday, Win a Chance to Become Youth Starter of the Game

Team USA is hosting the Cedar Rapids RoughRiders this Sunday, Nov. 18 at 3:30 p.m. EST and we want to pack the stands. Following the game, all fans have the opportunity to go on the ice and meet the players, but that’s not all. Read on to see how your youth hockey team could win the opportunity to skate with Team USA one-on-one or have a pizza party with future college and NHL stars. Remember that tickets cost only $1 for youth hockey players wearing team jerseys and everyone else in the group can get in for just $5! Regular pricing is $7 for adults and $5 for children / students / seniors.

SPECIAL PROMO ANNOUNCED! The first five teams to book a group of 20 or more for Sunday will have the opportunity to select one player from its team to skate as our honorary Youth Starter of the Game at a future USA Hockey contest. Youth Starters will suit up in full gear for a game, come out to the team’s intro music and be announced alongside the Team USA players! Our Youth Starters also get to take the first puck drop and its all captured on an 8×10 photo for the player.

WIN A PIZZA PARTY WITH TEAM USA! All teams that book a group of 10 or more will be entered to win a pizza party with Team USA. Simply book a group for Sunday’s game and you’re entered.

Bring the whole team, friends and family, out to a game and you could be a winner.
