This program welcomes players of all genders and is designed for 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 House/Initiation youth programs.  Participants are grouped by age and skill level.  Age parameters vary session to session based on space and availability.

If the potential participant can already skate forward, backward, and stop with ease, they may be too advanced for this program 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 40-45 minutes of each session dedicated to structured practice and the remaining 15-20 minutes designed for supervised practice time, small group games, and free play.

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.
