Wild About Reading

The Iowa Wild supports reading in its local community by providing a program that gives students an opportunity to earn hockey tickets by hitting their reading goals! 


Wild About Reading Program

  • Teacher program checklist
  • Bookmarks
  • Free ticket redemption forms

Program Outline:

  • Program runs for two weeks (or otherwise determined by the teacher)
  • Three reading goals are assigned to the class by the teacher

  • After each goal is achieved the student receives a prize

Goal 3 – Free ticket to a future Iowa Wild game

When a student completes the reading “hat trick", they receive a ticket to an upcoming Iowa Wild home game.
