These classes are strictly for “SKATING ONLY”. Hockey is a skating game and our aim is to develop good strong skaters.
The majority of the LEAD INSTRUCTORS have 20 plus years experience with the hockey school and are extremely qualified. Together with our team of student volunteers and Parent On-Ice Helpers who are willing to step on the ice, we have always had a program one step above and have set the example since 1967.
The Galt Minor Hockey School takes pride in their progressive learning approach. First we teach skaters how to stand on their own, then basic skating skills are introduced with fun on ice games and activities to keep each week engaging. Falling down and getting back up, striding, T-pushes, tight turns, backwards skating, cross-overs, gliding, side-stepping, different types of stopping techniques and mini obstacle courses are created with cones, sticks, bean bags, rings, etc. to help with balance and coordination.
IMPORTANT TO NOTE: As the season progresses and your child's skating skills become stronger, our Lead Instructors may advise your child be advanced to our Learn to Play program.
