Session 1: October - November

Forty-five minute ice times are usually two evenings per week.
No prior skating or hockey experience is necessary. Teaching kids how to skate is what we do!   
Our focus is providing a fun, safe, and exciting experience for all kids to learn how to skate and to begin learning the basic skills of ice hockey.   

Learn to Play registration is done on the website and normally opens up in May annually.  Discounts are given to those who register for all three sessions.
