This program is designed to teach  a non-skater and develop the basics of balance, stride and stopping on Hockey skates.

Ranger Rookie Program (Hockey Beginnings Program): Helps develop young players ages 4 to 8 by introducing them to basic skating and puck handling drills. The player must be able to skate efficiently on their own with a basic skating stride (without a parent or skating aid) to participate in this program. A player that simply stands on the ice with minimal movement or shuffling of their feet should be in the Learn-to-Skate program, and not this program.  Skating aids are not permitted in this program.
