Hockey Academy

About The Program

The Hockey Academy is a comprehensive skating and instructional skill development program. The goal of the program is to provide a fun, instructional program geared towards teaching hockey foundations in each players’ athletic development. The program will allow for the hockey coach to focus their efforts on skill development and game education.

The Hockey Academy is an excellent introduction to the sport of hockey and preparation for the Icetown In-House Hockey program. Hockey is an exciting team sport requiring speed, precision and teamwork. Sportsmanship, team play and hockey skills will be emphasized in this program.

The Hockey Academy will insist that its coaches, parents and players understand and live by fair play and sportsmanship. We believe that the game of hockey teaches not only physical skills but should teach life skills necessary for our youth to develop into good citizens of our community.

Ages 3 and over are welcome to attend this class.
