Hockey Lessons and Clinics

Hockey learn to skate

The most important skill in the development of a hockey player is skating. Our hockey curriculum is designed to teach the fundamentals of hockey skating. In four badge levels, skaters will learn to maneuver faster and be more agile on the ice. All elements will be taught without a stick or puck, as proper skating techniques are the primary focus of the levels. All participates begin in Hockey Level 1.

Hockey or bike helmet is required; other equipment is optional.


Registration is required; class is not subject to prorating.


For ages 3 to 12.

Class duration

1 hour. Each class will consist of a 30-minutes lesson and a 30-minute practice.
