Learn to Play Hockey #1
For children ages 5 and up. This program is an introductory class that will focus on fundamental hockey skills including proper stride, stopping and basic edgework. Players will be introduced to basic puck control, passing and shooting in this class; followed by a cross ice scrimmage to end.
Learn to Play Hockey #2
For children ages 6 and up with a minimum of 1 year hockey experience. More advanced skills such as proper backwards skating, pivots and crossovers will be introduced. Players will develop proper shooting and passing techniques and end each class with a cross ice scrimmage.
- Each class is approximately 1 hour long, with a guaranteed smaller class size and adequate student to instructor ratio.
- All skaters are required to wear a CSA approved hockey helmet with a full facial mask. As well they must be wearing full hockey equipment. Please remember the neck guard, jersey and socks. They will need a hockey stick as well.
