The FOCUS of our program is to develop basic hockey skills including skating, passing, puck handling, turning, stopping and shooting. Each skill is introduced and practiced in a progressive "one step at a time manner". Children learn through participating in practice drills and informal modified games under the direction of USA Hockey Certified On-Ice Coaching Instructors.
