LEARN TO PLAY HOCKEY

Open to GIRLS and BOYS!

Run by the 'Chesterfield Hockey Association' (our facility owner & operator), the Learn to Play - Hockey program is a fun way for kids to get introduced to the sport of ice hockey. Our goals are to develop a fun learning experience while teaching the basics of the sport of hockey. We will cover both skating and puck skills while progressing in a fun manner. Our certified on-ice coaches get the children to develop through a variety of practice drills and fun informal games. Furthermore, we offer most of the gear for a small deposit that is returned when you return the gear!

Frequency: We offer Learn to Play sessions throughout the year, even in Summer, so it’s never too late or too early to learn how to play hockey

NOTE: We do require children have passed a Sam 3 or Basic 2 level skating class before signing up. Since the fundamentals of playing hockey involve skating, we want to make sure children who have an interest in playing are starting off correctly with the tools to succeed.
