Frequently Asked Questions
- Please reach out to Information@MaryvilleUHC.com if you have any questions.
Isn’t Ice Hockey Expensive?
We know there is a perception that hockey can be expensive. While the cost of ice per hour and hockey equipment drives much of this perception, the Maryville University Hockey Center wants to make sure every player who has an interest in trying out hockey, has that opportunity.
How Safe is Hockey?
While all sports include some level of risk, ice hockey is very safe if played in the correct manner. In Ice Hockey, players are required to wear protective gear that covers much of their body, so while the risk is not zero, it is greatly reduced.
Additionally all players are required to register and become a member with USA Hockey. Membership with USA Hockey includes insurance. Read more about USA Hockey Membership Benefits.
Will You Teach Me How To Skate?
While our program is certainly designed to help improve a skating abilities, we do require you to be able to stop, start, and go the distance of the ice before signing up.
