FUTURE FLYERS

Learn to Skate for Hockey  

IS CURRENTLY IN PROGRESS 

    Our classes offer players who want to eventually play on a Flyers hockey team, however have little or no hockey or skating experience. This program takes the beginner skater from standing on skates to executing basic forward and backwards skating skills. Protective equipment is required and provided as part of this class. This includes helmet with facemask, elbow pads, shin guards, hockey gloves and stick. Skate rental is $3 per session.

For 3-6 year old classes only we allow one parent to accompany their child on the ice during the class. Parents must have their own skates. Please arrive 20 minutes prior to the start of class to put on equipment.

Please click on CLASSES at the top of the

It is with extreme sadness that we share the passing of Jeremiah Wiltgen back on July 8th, 2018. During the 2017-2018 season, Coach Jeremiah served as an assistant on our 2007 Squirt 1 SAHA all-star travel team.  Coach Jeremiah was an exceptional hockey coach and an even better person.  As an organization, we are saddened by his passing and offer our thoughts and prayers to the entire Wiltgen family.

We also recognize that this can be a very difficult time for parents and skaters who were close to the Wiltgen family.  Below are a few resources on how to talk with children about the death of a friend or loved one.
