The Arizona Coyotes are committed to improving literacy in the state of Arizona by offering an incentive-based reading program to local teachers at no cost. This year, the Coyotes Reading Program will be virtual until the new year. Teachers will be kept up to date as new updates, information and changes come about. The Coyotes Reading Program supports existing reading curriculums in grades 2-4 by encouraging students to increase the minutes they spend reading both in school and at home while receiving virtual tools and prizes for their accomplishments.


  • Teacher welcome letter
  • Program instructions
  • Student reading log for each student in your class

Applications will remain open until 150 classes are registered at each grade level, grades 2-4.

Set benchmarks (in minutes) for your students to receive Coyotes prizes, as well as a classroom goal.

STEP FOUR: Record Minutes
Students keep track of minutes read each day, both in class and at home, in their Student Reading Logs.

STEP FIVE: Submit Monthly Totals

STEP SIX: Earn Prizes
The top class in each grade for the month will receive a virtual visit from Howler, and the top students will receive 2 tickets to a future Arizona Coyotes home game.
