LEARN TO SKATE & PLAY
This program is designed for true beginners with limited skating experience, who are hoping to learn the fundamentals of skating and try out their hockey skills. Participants are grouped by age and skill level. Age requirements vary by session. Anyone outside of this age range listed for upcoming sessions is encouraged to contact us for other program options.
If the potential participant can already skate forward and backward with ease, they should check out our Comprehensive Skills Clinics or seek other programming. If the potential participant is an adult, check out our Adult Women's Programs.
Participants in Learn to Skate & Play will be taught by our experienced coaching staff and will focus primarily on skating basics with a portion of each session working on basic beginner stick skills. Registrants will be placed in small groups by age and skill level with 40-45 minutes of each session dedicated to structured practice and the remaining 15-20 minutes designed for supervised free practice time.

A Few Notes Before Registering for G4H Learn to Skate & Play...
Though we typically require full equipment for our programs, learn to skate & play is an exception. Full equipment is certainly preferred, but only the following is required:
Players should come to the rink with skates (figure or hockey are permissible) and a hockey helmet (bike and ski are acceptable, but helmets with a cage preferred). Players will also be required to wear gloves (hockey or ski gloves acceptable), knee pads (hockey or bike/skateboard are acceptable) and elbow pads (hockey or bike/skateboard are acceptable). If you have a stick, please also plan to bring one. We will have extras on hand if you do not have access.
If you have questions about the equipment required or need help accessing equipment for this program, please contact us. We are happy to assist.
At this time, indoor rinks are requiring all individuals affiliated with youth programs to wear masks at all times in the rink. This includes on the ice. As COVID-19 protocols are ever-changing, we will update registrants of current requirements leading in our reminder emails prior to each session.
Any questions or concerns can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
