Learn to Play Hockey
Learn to play the greatest sport on earth. Learn to Play Hockey!
Classes start TBD and will meet on Sundays. We follow the USA Hockey IP (Initiation Program) which includes: Fun, Skating Skills, Basic Stickhandling and Shooting, Basic Hockey Rules, Physical Conditioning, Team Play, Player Safety, Sportsmanship, and targets Progressive Development that prepares each player to join a team and become members of Kent Valley Hockey Association!
Our Beginner Hockey Program Instructors are experienced hockey coaches and parents who are committed to teaching the sport of Ice Hockey in a manner that is both fun and challenging. KVHA and USA Hockey require that all coaches and parents working with children in any capacity be registered with USA Hockey, and pass a mandatory background check. USA Hockey certified coaches attend educational seminars in the latest coaching and training techniques, so you can relax and let your child have fun and fall in love with the great sport of hockey.
