Playworks for every kid

Colorado Avalanche Street Hockey League
The Hockey League launched last year in 10 public schools in the Denver Metro Area and has grown to 14 this 2016-2017 school year. It is an 8-week program with alternating weeks of practice and games. Hockey games build commitment, respect, and a sense of community in all participants.

Harnessing the power of play to strengthen our kids, schools and communities.

"We have built on our common language and common problem solving expectations and skills.  The atmosphere on the playground has dramatically improved. Kids are excited to go out and play their favorite games not just hang out with a friend or clique.

Collaboration is in our nature
Every Playworks partnership is customized to meet our partners’ specific goals.

At Mattel, we believe in the power of play and the critical link between play and the healthy development and learning of children. With Playworks as a partner, we can directly and immediately translate that vision into direct impact with thousands of children each year.”
