New to Ice Hockey

Hockey 1, is an introduction to hockey skills. Children who join this program are expected to have some skating skills and be comfortable on the ice.
Developing Players

Hockey 2, is an opportunity to further develop your skills.
These programs cover skills such as hockey stance, forward and backward skating, edge work and turning. As these sessions focus on skating skills there are no pucks on the ice. 30min lesson and then extra time to practice new skills.
Children do not have to have full hockey gear to participate in the session but shin pads and helmets are highly recommended.
