FALL SESSION - Learn to Play 1: Introduction to ice hockey! This program is intended for first-time hockey players and will be a skills-based class. We will cover skills such as skating, stickhandling, shooting, positioning, and more! 

WINTER SESSION - Learn to Play 2: Continue your hockey journey! This program is intended for players who have completed LTP 1 or a similar program and have previous hockey experience. We will cover more advanced skills in this class! 

SPRING SESSION - Game Concepts: Time to play! This class is intended for players who have completed LTP 1 and LTP 2 or a similar program and have previous hockey experience. In this class, we will focus on positioning, hockey rules, systems, and game play! Our goal is for everyone to graduate the spring session ready to play hockey!
