2019-2020 LEARN TO PLAY - SESSION 1

CSYHA offers two session of Learn to Play.  Session 1 runs Mid-October though Late December and session 2 runs early January through early March. 

Registration for both sessions of Learn to Play typically opens around Labor Day and is performed online.   Discounts are given for those of register for both sessions, if you register for only one to try it and want to continue the discount can still be applied.  

LTP sessions are usually Forty-five minutes in duration both Saturday mornings (typically 9:00 a.m. or 10:00 a.m.) and Monday nights (6:15 p.m.).   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.   We will play some “hockey” the last ice time of Session 1 and the last few Saturday ice slots of Session 2. These games are NOT our focus. Our focus is F- U-N! We may add in a little skill development along the way.   

What You Need for LTP Sessions

Most kids who attend LTP sessions do wear full hockey gear.  This includes:

  • Hockey Helmet (Required)
  • Hockey Skates (Required)
  • Shin Pads 
  • Elbow Pads
  • Hockey Pants
  • Shoulder Pads
  • Hockey Gloves
  • Stick

Most of the LTP session are focused on skating skills and building balance and leg/foot strength.  Removing the stick from the equation forces them to rely on their own balance.  Instructors vary drill and kids progress and over the course of the sessions you will find that kids move from group to group based on skill advancing groups as they work.

 

 Kids who work hard, push themselves outside of their comfort zone and have fun find progress faster and have a good chance of finding themselves on regular season teams quicker.

 

Good luck on the ice!

LTP Instructors

As your kids attend LTP you will see a varying group of instructors.  All are volunteers and experienced at different levels of Hockey.  Normally our Director of Youth Hockey is the key leader and he leverages both board members as well as various coaches and Asst. coaches from the CSYHA teams as may be available that day to help out.    

 

Additionally you will normally see a group of kids age 13-18 on the ice that are CSYHA players that also play High School Hockey for Cazenovia High School.  They are at the rink between HS practices waiting for CSYHA Bantam or Midget practices and they volunteer in their free time if they do not have too much homework to work with the LTP kids.  

 

Additionally, you will see some young adults out on the ice that are either SUNY Morrisvlle Ice Hockey Players and sometimes you will catch or coach or asst coach from the team.  


LTP is a community event and there is always a need for help on the ice.  Do not hesitate to thank the many volunteers that help the LTP program and should you want to help out on the ice you are more than welcome, just let the LTP coordinator know and we will get you started with the requirements for being on the ice.
