MYH's Learn to Skate Program Overview
Welcome! Milton Youth Hockey (MYH) is looking forward to starting its 56th Learn To Skate Program season this year, and although different from previous years, is anticipating another great season!
The focus of this Learn to Skate Program is to teach Milton children, ages four and older, the fundamental skills required to become good skaters with the potential of developing an interest in the sport of ice hockey or figure skating. The goal of each participant is: "to learn and to be the best skater I can be." This is accomplished through easy to follow instruction, fun drills, and by placing the children into small groups by age and ability.
This year the program will offer two sessions, each six weeks in length.
The first 6 week session begins on Sunday, November 29, 2020 and runs through January 3, 2021.
The second 6 week session begins on Sunday, January 10, 2021 and runs through February 14, 2021.
All sessions will be held Sunday’s at the Max Ulin MDC Rink in Milton.
Boys will skate from 11:00 to 11:45 a.m.
Girls will skate from 12:00 to 12:45 p.m.
Due to Covid restrictions, unfortunately sessions will be limited to 30 skaters and registration will be offered on a first come, first served basis.
Please note that participants can only register for one (1) six week session to enable maximum participation for all interested Milton youngsters.
Participants are not able to make up missed classes.
