May 11th - July 28th
This league has brought the fun back to summer hockey! Always exciting and explosive, the 3-on-3 League has for years helped kids to practice the fundamentals of hockey while experimenting with an innovative, pace-motivated play style that leads to more action per shift than any other form of hockey in Pittsburgh! All games are no check, which fosters the development of skating, passing, stick-handling, and shooting.
