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.

Thanks to Stanley Cup winning former Chicago Blackhawks player and current television analyst Jamal Mayers and the Blackhawks for offering a Rink Partnership Clinic on December 30th where all participants had made generous donations to the Village of Skokie Holiday Giving Program to help out the needy people of Skokie for the holidays.

Stan Mikita played at the Skatium in the very first Chicago Blackhawks Alumni Game in 1988. Here he battles for a loose puck against Dale Tallon, as the late Keith Magnuson backs up Tallon. The referee was an active playing Denis Savard and the goalie was Skatium's Hockey Director Steve Glickman.
