This program provides new players an opportunity to learn basic skating and hockey skills. We follow the American Development Model (ADM) developed by USA Hockey, which focuses on age and skill appropriate development in a fun and interactive setting. No prior skating experience is necessary.
The program starts in mid November, after our fall Try Hockey for Free Day, and runs through February.
John M. Coyne Recreation Center
Practices are held once a week, on the weekend, for 1 hour.
Players need to be registered with USA Hockey (free for 6 and under). At a minimum players will need skates, a helmet with cage/visor, and hockey gloves. Hockey pants, shin guards, shoulder pads, and elbow pads are strongly encouraged.
