So for just $159, you can sign up for 5 weeks of LTP AND 5 weeks of LTS! We have a hockey class within our LTS program, no sticks or pucks. It focuses on hockey skating skills OR you can choose a regular LTS class to focus on your c cuts, crossovers etc. (Check levels out at www.ice-land.com/learntoskate.)

Information

While Ice Hockey requires a great deal of skill, the proper instruction and attitude make the game more fun and rewarding.

Our Learn to Play Hockey Program incorporates the most current and innovative ideas available today. It represents the best methods of starting beginning players on the right path to an enjoyable experience in our sport.

The Learn to Play Hockey Program lesson plans have been well tested, and have proven successful in every type of community setting. The established program objectives are:

  • To learn the basic skills required to play the game of hockey.
  • To develop an understanding of basic teamwork through participation in a variety of activities and adapted game situations.
  • To have fun while playing hockey and engaging in physical activity.
  • To create and refine basic motor patterns.
  • To be introduced to the concepts of cooperation, fair play and sportsmanship.

Ice Land's Learn to Play Hockey Program has two levels of instruction designed for beginning hockey players. Each classification represents a different level of skill progression. At the beginning of the program, players are evaluated according to ability and placed in the appropriate program level.

Each level consists of different lesson plans that follow a defined path of progression. As players move through the program, they improve both hockey skills and self-confidence.

The program focuses primarily on basic hockey skills: skating, puck-handling, passing and shooting.

Each skill is introduced and refined in a progressive "one step at a time" manner.

Players participate in practice drills, informal and modified games (similar to shinny or pond hockey). Players are soon proficient enough to have fun while they play.

Although the main emphasis is on fun and progressive skill development, the Learn to Play Hockey Program also allows youngsters to experience:

  • Cooperation
  • Fair play
  • Fitness

In addition to developing players' hockey skills and promoting physical fitness, our Instructors encourage initiative, stimulate interest in the sport, and instill a desire for continued participation.

We ask that skater's have completed some level of 'c' cuts or pumps and started crossovers before signing up for LTP, although it is not required.
