LEARN TO PLAY HOCKEY AT CHAPARRAL ICE CENTER
Anyone Can Learn to play Hockey and it's never to late to learn! Our classes are open to boys and girls ages 3 to 99. Below is all the information you need to get you in the game.
First you need to Learn to Skate! We offer 8-Week Hockey Learn to Skate Classes.
If your child is 3-5 years old, they will take the Hockey or Regular Skating Snowplow 1-3 classes. If your child is 6-14, they will take the Hockey Level 1 class, after which they will take the Hockey Level 2 class. Adults should take the Adult Hockey Skating Class.
At the end of each session we evaluate the players and see if they need to take further skating lessons or if they are ready to move up into the Hockey Learn to Play Program. Class times are listed below.
The Hockey Learn to Play Program is an hour long class that focuses on teaching our skaters how to be hockey players by learning the following skills: stick handling, shooting, passing, body position, offensive and defensive play.
Gear for Hockey Skating Classes:
Rental skates are provided for all of our skating classes. We recommend wearing warm, layered clothing. Helmets and gloves/mitts are mandatory.
