Introduction

In 1991, the San Jose Sharks created Sharks & Parks, a street hockey program that provided schools, community centers and youth organizations with street hockey equipment and coaching tools and instruction to select centers in order to generate an interest in hockey and make it more accessible to local youth.

The program was so successful in San Jose, that the NHL hired its creator to implement the program at a league level. Currently the program is in all 30 NHL cities. If you are interested in having Sharks & Parks, an NHL Street Program, at your location or would like to find out where your child can participate in a program nearby, please review the following:

Program Information

Sharks & Parks powered by Kaiser Permanente is a street hockey program that can be played either indoors on a gymnasium floor, or outdoors on blacktop. In order for centers and schools to run a fun and rewarding program, the San Jose Sharks & Kaiser Permanente provide street hockey equipment and instructional material, such as administrator manuals for coaches and playbooks for kids. In addition, the Sharks will be sending out monthly newsletters with information regarding the program and tips to help kids improve their hockey skills as well as their health. The Sharks & Parks season typically kickoffs with a tournament in the Fall, coinciding with the beginning of the Sharks season and culminates in the Spring.

If your school or center is interested in becoming a Sharks & Parks program center, please email Tim Howell at thowell@sharkssports.net or call (408) 977-4757 for more information.

Due to program limitations, interested schools or centers may have to wait until the next season before being able to participate.
