2020-21 Learn to Skate - Full Season (16 Weeks)

This Registration is for the FULL 16-WEEK Learn to Skate Season. 
 
The Watertown Youth Hockey Learn to Skate program is for boys and girls who would like to learn the fundamentals of ice skating. The program is run by the professional instructors of the Sharper Edge Skating School. It is designed to develop strong basic skating skills (balance, stride, edges and stopping) as an introductory program for children interested in ice hockey.  The 40 min per week lessons are ideal for children 4 years of age and up. Parents of children under 4 that are interested in the program are encouraged to contact Watertown Youth Hockey to discuss the eligibility of their child. 
 
No previous skating experience is necessary. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Sharper Edge skating instructors and WYH volunteers will be unable to physically aid skatersTherefore, all participants must be able to stand on the ice and get up off the ice after a fall without aid OR be accompanied by a family-provided assistant on the ice. The assistant must have sufficient skating ability to safely aid the skater and follow the direction of the Sharper Edge instructors while on the ice. WYH recognizes that this requirement will prevent some new skaters from participating but it is necessary to ensure the safety of our families and instructors.
 
During class, children will be divided according to ability. These groups will develop various skills as they work their way through the curriculum. As skills are mastered the children will move up to a more advanced group. The Learn to Skate program is an introductory program that will give children the skills necessary to move forward through the Watertown Youth Hockey system, eventually transitioning to Learn to Play and ultimately into the Travel hockey program. 
 
Skaters will participate in a 40-minute lesson each Sunday starting at 11:40 a.m., 12:20 p.m., or 1:00 p.m. Once a start time is selected, skaters may not change their designated lesson time without permission from the Sharper Edge instructors and Watertown Youth Hockey.
 
IMPORTANT COVID-19 REQUIREMENTS:  Due to the ongoing pandemic, skaters who are not yet able to both stand on their own and get up off the ice after falling will require a designated parent, guardian, or other family-provided assistant to accompany them on the ice.  For everyone's safety, instructors will not be allowed to physically assist program participants. If your child will requires phyical on-ice assistance, please provide the name of the associated volunteer during the registration process.

2020-21 Learn to Play Hockey

The Learn to Play Hockey program is designed for boys and girls with prior skating experience that are ready to learn hockey skills. It is recommended for children that are 4 to 12 years of age. 
 
Learn to Play is the backbone of Watertown Youth Hockey. The vast majority of players in our travel program started their hockey playing “career” in this program. It introduces new hockey players to the various skills (skating, stick handling, puck movement and control), necessary to play hockey. Players will have hockey sessions on Saturdays and skating sessions on Sundays for 16 weeks. On Sundays, the professional skating instructors of the Sharper Edge Skating School will work with players to improve their skating. In the other session, players will learn hockey skills from WYH’s USA Hockey certified coaches and play in cross-ice hockey games with skaters in the Newton Learn to Play program. 
 
Players entering the Learn to Play program should be able to demonstrate basic-level skating skills: forward stride and ability to stop. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, all players must be able to get back on the skates after a fall without the aid of an instructor.
 
Skaters will participate in a 40-minute skating lesson each Sunday at either 12:20 or 1:00 pm. We cannot guarantee your selected start time but will try our best to accomodate your preference.  For Saturdays, players will be assigned to a 50-minute session for hockey skills/games starting at either 9:20 or 10:20, depending on age and experience. 
 
Full hockey equipment is required (see below).
