Hockey Tots

Ages 4-5 – $90

This class is designed for those ages 4-5 with little or no skating experience that have hockey on the brain.  Class participants will learn the basics of skating with and without their hockey sticks including falling and getting up, marching, 2-foot glides, stopping and more.  The focus will be on skating skills and not the actual game of hockey.  Although this is a hockey geared class it is always recommended for new skaters to begin in figure skates and change to hockey skates once a solid sense of balance has been established.  Graduates of this class will continue on into the Hockey Skills 1-5 series.
