Our house league is a great place for the beginner hockey player to learn to skate, learn the fundamentals of ice hockey and make new friendships likely to last a lifetime!
For kids who have never skated before, have shown an interest in hockey, or even late bloomers and skaters with only a little experience but eager to learn more, we have a program suitable for kids ages 4 and up!
Our Learn to Skate Program has two practice ice sessions per week on Saturday mornings and Sunday afternoons and typically runs two 8  weekend sessions (November through December) (January through March). We adhere to the American Developmental Model for age appropriate instruction and emphasize fun for the new player!
If you have just moved to the area and missed the start of the season, no worries! We can work with players being added at pretty much any point in the year, so don't hesitate to reach out to the registrar.
We would love to have your family join us! Please see the link below for registration information, or email questions to
The typical practice schedule is:
Level 1 and 2 (Learn to skate & Learn to Play) Saturdays 8am, Sundays 3pm
  • Level 1 - Focus on the fundamentals. New youngsters to the ice start off with the use of a sled or crate to hold on to and learn the basics of feeling the skates under them.
