The Learn-To-Play hockey program is a beginner hockey program.  It is ideal for skaters who have graduated from the Learn-To-Skate program 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.  When a skater demonstrates the skills needed, they will be recommended to play at their appropriate age level, in either the Rec or Travel program.  If there are any questions regarding placement of your skater, please contact:
