Hockey Leagues and Lessons – Development & Training

Private lessons are available. Click here for more information & to register.

Note: Prior to participating in hockey development programs and leagues, players must complete and pass basic ice skating. Ice skating programs are offered year-round and students can begin classes at any time. Learn more about ice skating.

Our unique teaching method focuses on building a strong foundation on the 7 elements of skating. These elements include edges, pivots, balance, transition/footwork, agility, strides, and crossovers, which leads to players having higher success rates developing superior skills, and playing team hockey. Join us at any time!
