We admit it… hockey players need specialized hockey skating skills. That's why this 7-week (one day a week) program is designed to teach the fundamentals of hockey skating. Learn to Skate Beginner Hockey Skills 1 + 2 and Learn to Skate Advanced Hockey Skills 3 + 4 are the next steps for progressing skaters with an enthusiasm for the game of ice hockey. With the help of a coach, plan to learn specific hockey skills.

In four badge levels, skaters will learn how to maneuver faster and be more agile on the ice. All elements will be taught without a puck. Skaters will learn the necessary fundamentals to be successful in game situations.

Skaters must have successfully completed Beginner levels before advancing to the Advanced levels.
