Learn to Skate/Intro to Hockey Spring Session


LEARN TO SKATE/Intro to Hockey
 
Sundays 1:10 pm - 2:00 pm
February 21, 2015 - March 27, 2016
  
McVann Rink
Peabody, MA 
 
 
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 or no 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 LEARN TO SKATE program will be specifically tailored for boys and girls that have never skated before and the training will follow the recommendations of US Figure Skating Association Snow Plow Sam Series. Sticks and pucks will not be introduced until an appropriate time, if at all.  The program is oriented to teaching children how to put on skates, walk in skates, fall and get up and the basic skills of skating such as starting, stopping, turning and skating backwards.   One half of the ice sheet will be reserved for the children in this program.  Children in this program are required to wear helmets (bike helmets ok).  Elbow and knee pads are highly recommended, but not required.  Children will have to provide their own skates or may rent skates for a nominal fee from the rink.  Children that excel at learning how to skate or demonstrate competency at skating will be moved to the INTRO TO HOCKEY program at the discretion of the instructor.
 
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.
