Learn To Play Hockey

Learn To Play Hockey is a recreational introductory program that teaches and hones basic core hockey skills. This class is geared towards skaters who want to try hockey or are thinking of joining house league.

The class is open to skaters ages 5 – 8 years old with previous skating experience.  Skaters must be able to glide forwards on their own and have started their edge work in previous lessons.

This program is not for beginner skaters.  This program is for skaters who have not had any previous learn to play or organized hockey experience, as it is a basic introduction to hockey only.  Skaters must have had previous skating experience prior to registering in our Learn to Play program.

Skaters who have not had previous skating experience should register for one of our funSKATE or funSKATE*PLUS Programs.  Skating is the hardest skill to master and one of the most important skills in today’s hockey.

Skaters who have had any previous hockey experience should register for one of our Power classes to focus on developing strong technical skating skills.  Skating is the hardest skill to master and one of the most important skills in today’s hockey.

Learn to Play Hockey has a small student-to-coach ratio, with hands-on coaching, skill correction, and precise repetition. Using our results-proven “slow and perfect” approach, the Learn to Play Hockey program introduces skaters to our technical skating and works on the foundational skills of hockey including shooting, passing, stick handling, skating with the puck for half the class and includes game like play for half the class.

Full hockey equipment (including stick and neck guard) are required for this class.

*Our classes are a full ice hour (60 minutes minus a mandatory ice resurfacing).

Frequently Asked Questions

What kind of hockey equipment, hockey skates or figure skates should I buy and where?
Skates are the most important piece of equipment in hockey and for your lessons. The quality and proper fit directly affect your progress. Skates make a difference! We highly recommend going to a sport specific store that spends time fitting you and/or your child properly.

If I miss a class does PowerSkating Academy offer make-up lessons?
We do not offer make-up lessons. We focus on the quality of our school and doing what we say. Make-ups lessons are disruptive to the class.
