Hockey Night in Canada Play On!


Play On! is the largest annual participatory sports event in Canadian history, with its fifteenth anniversary season in 2018. Designed to capture the spirit of fun in sport, it provides access and opportunity for anyone to play street hockey in a highly organized and distinctively Canadian setting. The program has attracted an estimated 2.5M Canadians to the 170 events held to date, and holds the Guinness World Record as the largest street hockey event in the world. Play On! Canada is a not for profit organization with a mandate to “promote the importance of play by producing and supporting events that provide Canadians with positive introductory sport experiences.”

Play On! has been championed by the CBC’s Hockey Night in Canada since 2007. The national series is also sponsored by Booster Juice, VIA Rail, GoodLife Fitness, JVCKenwood, TimberMart, Driving Force, and Culligan Water. The official national charitable partners for Play On! in 2017 were the Boys & Girls Clubs of Canada and Canadian Blood Services.
