Youth Hockey at Sno-King Ice Arenas

Ages 4 to 17 years

Learning ice skating fundamentals before starting hockey is key. Children and Adults progress at their own time through the levels of Learn to Skate and Learn to Play programs. Skaters will advance through the various levels at their own pace. We highly recommend children and adults participate in a Tot/Basic 1/Basic 1 Adult Learn to Skate Series before they are introduced to hockey.

We offer Try Hockey Free days at all locations.  New Skaters ages 4 to 16 are welcome to attend these events to give it a try!

Children ages 4 to 16 progress through the steps below to become hockey players

Ages 4 – 16

Try Hockey For Free events provide children between the ages of 4 and 16 the opportunity to experience playing hockey for the first time. We love introducing new players to the sport of hockey.

Ages 3 – 16

Before new players can score a goal, they need to learn to skate and become quick, agile, and efficient on the ice!  Our Learn to Hockey Skate curriculum is divided into 4 levels.

Ages 5 – 16

The focus and goal of Learn To Play-Hockey 1 and Hockey 1 Late Start is to teach beginner ice skaters the fundamentals of ice skating. It’s important for these players to become comfortable on the ice, learn the basic hockey stance, stride, knee bend, use of edges and how to hold a stick before moving on to Learn To Play-Hockey 2 (LTP-H2).

Ages 5 – 9

Learn To Play-Hockey 2 is designed for players ages 5 to 9 who have basic skating skills and are ready for more hockey. This program consists of small groups of players on the ice with similar skill levels skating in full hockey gear.

Once players have graduated from Hockey 2 they are rostered to one of our teams to play in our Sno-King Youth Hockey League.
