LEARN TO PLAY HOCKEY PROGRAM
The Beginner Clinic is our “Introduction to Hockey” program designed to introduce young beginners to the game of hockey. It is intended for players age 10 and under.

Family Fun Hockey
per skater. If your family group has one or more players 13 or under, each
additional player in the group, after the first player, will be $10.
A fun program for families to skate together, do drills together and experience the game of hockey like never before! (Any family combination is welcome. i.e. Father/Son, Husband/Wife, Brother/Sister, etc.) Note that slap shots or shots above the knee are not allowed – young players have the right of way on the ice!
This is an unstructured program where we provide the “neighborhood pond” and you are the neighbor’s sharing the pond. You should feel free to join in with some of your neighbors for a friendly scrimmage on part of the ice or to use another part of the ice for practice with your family members and other neighbors. Most important though is for you to come and enjoy!
