Hockey Development Programs - 2022

Program Descriptions



PLEASE NOTE:  All of our Hockey Development programs require full hockey equipment.  For a list of all required equipment please  CLICK HERE

Learn to Hockey Skate: Is a fundamental program designed for the new/beginner skater ages 4 to 8. This program is designed to teach  a non-skater and develop the basics of balance, stride and stopping on Hockey skates. This program is designed for players in full Hockey gear to allow them to feel like Hockey players while being protected on the ice from falls that would normally hurt their knees or behinds.  

Jr 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.

Lady Ranger Rookie Program:  Helps develop young girls between ages 4 to 8 skating and puck skills. The player must be able to skate independently without any aids or parents on the ice in order to participate in this program.
