LEARN TO SKATE & PLAY PROGRAMS

Upcoming Schedule

Fall 2023 Learn to Skate & Play

Learn to Skate & Play is generally designed for participants of any gender who are ages 4 - 14.  Participants in this program are true beginners with limited skating experience, who are hoping to learn the fundamentals of skating and try out their hockey skills.  Learn to Skate & Play may also be used as a supplement for those in House/Initiation youth programs who need a little extra help with their skating.  Participants are grouped by age and skill level.  


If the potential participant can already skate forward, backward, and stop with ease, they may be too advanced for this program and should contact us for best fit program recommendation.

Participants in Learn to Skate & Play will be taught by our experienced coaching staff and will focus primarily on skating with the latter portion of each session working on basic beginner stick skills. Registrants will be placed in small groups by age and skill level with 45-50 minutes of each session dedicated to structured practice and the remaining 10-15 minutes designed for supervised practice time, small group games, and free play.

NEW! Girls Learn to Skate & Play - TEEN

Given recent interest, G4H is excited to introduce Fall 2023 Girls Learn to Skate & Play - TEEN. Unlike our typical Learn to Skate & Play, this program is designed specifically for female, female-identifying, or non-binary players aged 13 - 18 who are interested in learning to skate with the goal of eventually playing more organized hockey.  Participants in this program can have some skating experience or none at all.  Participants will be grouped by skill level.  Ice time will be shared with our general Learn to Skate & Play program, but our TEEN program will work on a separate section of the ice and will be catered appropriately for the age group served.

Participants in Learn to Skate & Play TEEN will be taught by our experienced coaching staff and will work on the core 4 fundamental skills of skating, shooting, stick handling, and passing.  Sessions will meet players where they are and will be designed based on the experience levels of those who register.  Small games & competitions will be built in to the end of each session to help players practice the skills they learned in more of a game-like setting.


Sundays - October 15th - November 5th 

1:15pm Leddy Park Arena

Cost: 

All 4 Sessions - $85

Individual Sessions - $25/Session

A Few Notes Before Registering for G4H Learn to Skate & Play...

Equipment Requirements:
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).  If you do not have access to skates, please contact us as we may be able to rent you skates from the rink. 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.
