Here is some basic information regarding our upcoming entry level programs:=

  • Summer Learn to Skate - This session will run on Monday evenings, 6-7pm, 7/11 through 8/22. 
  • Summer 3v3 Challenge - this program is always a sell-out, don't wait to register!  Monday nights, 7/11 thru 8/22.  Mini-mites and Mites will skate from 7:10-8:10, and Squirts and PeeWees will skate from 8:10-9:10.


We offer entry level hockey programs for ages 5-13.  Participants must be able to skate independently for all programs.  The more capable and comfortable they are skating, the more they can participate and enjoy learning hockey skills. We recommend everyone consider taking the September session of skating lessons to refresh or strengthen their skating skills.  Below is some basic info about our fall programs. Pricing, schedule, and online registration for the coming season will be available at the end of August or early September.
