For Hockey Buffs
With programs catering to both recreational and competitive players, Chaparral has something for hockey buffs of any skill level.
Learn to Play
It’s important for players to become comfortable on the ice, learn basic hockey stance, stride, knee bend, use of edges, and how to hold a stick before moving into a learn-to-play or full hockey curriculum. Hockey skating classes are based on USFSA Hockey 1-4 curriculum and Learn-To-Skate classes on USA Hockey Initiation program curriculum.
