**You must register for Learn to Skate through U.S. Figure Skating first, registration covers skaters from July 1 - June 30 each year**
Learn to Play Hockey is a station based program, which models USA Hockey’s ADM program. Stations focus on different skills, where players get more reps in each drill. This creates more opportunities to improve player skills. Stations rotate every few minutes. One station will be a controlled scrimmage. We focus on the following areas: Skating, Stick Handling, Passing, Shooting, and Positional Play. Full equipment is required.
**To participate in our Learn to Play program, players must be able to skate. Ideally, players have completed "Learn to Skate" through Snowplow Sam Level 4. Players can register for Learn to Skate and Learn to Play concurrently, however it is important to note that the better a player can skate, the more they will get out of their Learn to Play experience.**
