We have a team of highly qualified instructors who coach on-ice practices and lessons. Groups within the classes are divided based on age and ability.

Hockey has a lot of components and can be overwhelming when you add gear, sticks and pucks to kids who are not comfortable on their skates. All Learn to Skate classes may be completed in hockey skates and are recommended as the starting point for players of all ages who are new to ice skating. For more information or questions about skating classes, please contact Skating Manager David Hicks.
