Program Description: The Learn-to-Play Hockey Program is our entry program into hockey. It is ideally suited for boys and girls ages 5 to 10 that have graduated from the Learn-to-Skate program, or have some skating experience and want to begin to learn to play hockey. The program focuses on the fundamental skating and stick-handling skills used in games in addition to improving each player’s balance, agility and control. Practices will include stations that teach a variety of skills including: stopping, turning and skating backwards, as well as, stick handling, passing and shooting. A fun and encouraging environment will be maintained with an emphasis on teaching through drills and small area games. Hockey shirts will be provided for all players.
Required Equipment: HECC approved helmet with face mask, shoulder pads, elbow pads, hockey pants, knee pads, hockey skates, hockey gloves, and hockey stick.
*CHA has a limited amount of hockey equipment (helmets, pants, shin pads, elbow pads, and gloves) available to registered players. If you are interested in borrowing the equipment for the season, please contact our Development Program Director (email address below).
