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.
