Hockey 1 & Hockey 2 - Learn to Skate Programs

Hockey 1 & 2 is a beginner level program for girls and boys ( ages 3/4 and up) who have no, or very little, prior skating experience. Participants will learn how to skate and be introduced to hockey play.  Skilled skating instructors will train participants how to skate in a progressive and sequential manner.  We recommend all skaters complete both before advancing to the Atom (6U Pre-Mite), Mite level (8U), or traveling team play. 

While Hockey 1 and 2 will focus on beginner skating skills, Hockey 2 will begin to introduce participants to the fundamentals of hockey play.  A station format will be implemented to enable skaters to learn a multitude of skills and advance at their own pace. Equipment will be provided for beginner level hockey programs with check-out and return required. 

The Hockey 1 & 2 program is offered in FREE, 7-week sessions throughout the year.  While the base fee is waived, USA Hockey requires an annual fee of $50 for youth ages 7 and over participating in hockey. For those who sign up for our "Try Hockey for Free" Sessions held November 11th and February 23rd, the USA Hockey fee will be waived for the year (or the remaining sessions in the season).  

The next 7-week  session for Hockey 1 & 2 starts March 21, 2019. The first night will be a parent orientation and gear fitting for new participants. Ongoing skaters will go on ice. Join at anytime during these FREE sessions. Register on the link at right for Spring 2019.

Please note that our Girls Developmental Program is a free, introductory program in which participants also learn how to skate and play hockey in a progressive and sequential manner. This program targets girls only, ages 6 and up. Please see the Girls Developmental page for more information.  Girls can join both Hockey 1 & 2 and Girls Developmental at the same time.
