Learn to Play
Ages 5 - 8
Our hockey program is designed to introduce young athletes to the magic of hockey through a fun and supportive environment. The primary focus is on hockey skating skills, but we start to implement pucks and other necessary hockey skills in our learn to play classes. Each program has low player to coach ratios in order to obtain a maximum learning environment for beginner hockey players.
Prior skating experience is required. Please click here for more information.
