Helpful Information

 

Arrive 20 min early to check-in and prepare for class.

Players should wear comfortable clothing that provides a level of warmth. Sweat pants/athletic track-style pants can be worn over shin pads in the absence of hockey socks. A long sleeve tee shirt makes a great base layer under pads and jerseys. Socks for feet should be of medium thickness, and cover the upper ankle.

Take your player ice skating! Jr. Stick and Puck and Public Skate sessions are a great way to build skating skills.
