MINI MARAUDER LEVEL I – Learn To Skate For Hockey

Learn to Skate for Hockey is for kids any age who are new to skating or want to learn to skate in order to play hockey.  There is a once a week practice where we work on getting up, balancing, pushing, gliding and stopping.  The skaters are placed into groups with similar ability including a separate area for kids that have never skated before. Kids will learn by becoming comfortable on the ice and participating in fun games and drills designed to make kids move and use their edges. The program is not capped at a maximum number, and your child will not be denied a spot.
