Learn to Play is the next progressive step from our Learn to Skate Program.  Players who are signing up for Learn to Play must be strong skaters and able to skate unassisted.  The three levels of the Learn to Play program introduces your child to more advanced skating, agility, balance and also the introduction to hockey sticks.  How to stickhandle, shoot and pass the puck.

These classes are strictly for “SKATING and LEARNING HOW TO USE THE STICK”.  The first few weeks of the programs are dedicated to skating only.  Our aim is to develop good strong skaters and teach them how to use their stick for stickhandling and shooting the puck.

Learn to Play Levels:
Basics - is skating and introduction of puck handling skills along with the introduction to hockey fundamentals.  
Throughout the season, this program’s emphasis is on progressing to higher level skating and puck control drills.

Intermediate & Advanced
 - is for the more advanced skaters and offers more advanced drills.

By having the three (3) different levels in Learn to Play, we can open up the ice and in turn get more 1 on 1 instruction for the participants. There is the opportunity for players to move up a level if the Instructors feel it will benefit the player.

FULL EQUIPMENT NEEDED: CLICK HERE TO SEE PICTURE
Approved helmet, approved full face guard, approved throat guard, shin pads, elbow pads, shoulder pads, hockey pants, hockey socks, hockey gloves, skates, jock / jill and hockey stick

NOTE: NO SKATERS WILL BE ALLOWED ON THE ICE WITHOUT THE ABOVE EQUIPMENT

STICKS: The length of the stick should be measured this way.  With their skates on, the tip of the blade should be on the ground and the top of the stick should come to the tip of their nose.  With the stick at the proper length, the player will be able to handle and shoot the puck much easier.  We prefer at this age a straight blade or one with very little curve.

IMPORTANT TO NOTE: As the season progresses and your child's skating and stick handling skills become stronger, our Lead Instructors may advise your child be moved from Basics to Advanced or from Advanced to our U7 Cross-Ice Hockey Program.
