This is a Foundations of Hockey program for boys and girls of all ages that want to learn to skate, stick handle, and learn the rules of hockey. Skating skills are the basis for good hockey playing, so there will be an emphasis on learning skills. Please note: We strive to keep our clinic costs low each year because we recognize that there are additional equipment purchases necessary to participate (i.e. helmet, pads, stick, tape, etc.). Be sure to come to the Skate Swap first for equipment and drop off your outgrown equipment for other members!!
