The NR Youth Hockey is pleased to announce a LEARN TO SKATE program for boys and girls aged 4 and up. The program is suitable for children with limited exposure to skating. This new program will be free to all North Reading residents and qualified families from other surrounding communities. Space will be limited in order to keep the student/instructor ratio effective.
The Intro to Hockey program will be specifically suited for boys and girls that have some skating experience or those that show sufficient skating competency to participate in small area games and activities while wearing hockey equipment. The players will work on (1) basic skating skills, including ready position, forward skating and stopping, and (2) introductory hockey skills such as stick handling, American Development Model and USFA’s Introduction to Hockey series. Sticks, pucks, balls, ringlets and other tools along with small area games will be utilized to introduce these children to basic concepts of hockey. 5 on 5 traditional games are not appropriate for this age group and will not be utilized. Children in this program are required to have skates, wooden stick and a helmet. Hockey equipment such as HECC approved helmet, shoulder, shin and elbow pads as well as gloves and pants are required.
