Hockey Tots

Ages 4-5 – $99 per six week session

Class participants will learn the basics of skating with and without 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 1-4 series.

Please Note: Skate Rental is available, but not included in registration price ($18 for the six week class). Please purchase skate rental in advance online when purchasing your Skating School Class (if you need it) and as always, you are certainly welcome to bring your own skates.
