LEARN TO SKATE/Intro to Hockey
 
Sundays 1:10 pm - 2:00 pm
February 26, 2017 - April 9, 2017
  
McVann Rink
Peabody, MA 
 
 
The NR Youth Hockey is pleased to announce a LEARN TO SKATE program for boys and girls ages between 3 and 12.  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.

MINI-MITE REGISTRATION NOW OPEN

North Reading Mini-Mites (ages 4-8)

 

“FIRST TO THE PUCK”

 

The Mini-Mite program focuses on teaching the fundamentals of hockey using USA Hockey's small-area game and cross-ice model. The program begins in on October 29, 2016 and ends on April 15, 2017. Mini-Mites skate twice weekly, Saturday and Sunday mornings. at the Merrimack College Lawler Rink.

 

The focus of this program is to teach the children the correct mechanics of skating and hockey by providing FUN and ENGAGING small area games and competitions.  The goal is to teach these fundamentals in new and exciting ways where the kids don’t even know they are being taught.  We try not to put kids in boring lines and keep them moving and skating for the full practice ice time.  We have found that most kids cannot wait to get on the ice every morning.

 

Players are divided into groups by skill level and instruction is based on the abilities of the group. The novice group will work primarily on skating and puck handling while the more advanced groups will work on continuing development of individual skills and building team skills. Players may be moved between groups at the discretion of the on-ice coordinator during the season. Skating instruction will include forward and backward stride, glide turns, crossover turns, stops and starts, and edge control. Stick handling instruction will be taught at all levels with more advanced concepts (individual "moves" and speed with the puck) being introduced in the more advanced groups. Passing and shooting skills will be taught and incorporated into many of the drills, small area games will be played. 

This year we will be offering free hockey equipment for new sign-ups that complete the program.  This will include the following: Ice hockey helmet with facemask, mouth guard, neck guard, ice hockey shoulder pads and elbow pads, hockey pants, cup or pelvic supporter, hockey shin pads, hockey stick, hockey gloves and properly fitted hockey skates. Jerseys and hockey socks will be provided by North Reading Skating Association.

 

Program fees are $750. and are due by the end of 2016. Payment plan options are available upon request.  Please also note that if your child does not enjoy the sport – we will refund your money less a 25.00 registration fee during the first 60 days of the program.

 

Please call or email Dan Collins with any questions about the program.
