Our Intro to Hockey program is designed for kids who have some basic skating experience (such as Pre-Skate) and are comfortable moving around the ice on their own.  Parental participation is encouraged although not mandatory.  This is an entry level program offering kids the opportunity to experience the sport of hockey in a fun, safe and caring environment.  Kids will learn basic skills through games and activities that focus on the fundamentals of hockey (stick handling, passing, receiving, and shooting) as well as the fundamentals of skating (striding, stopping, turning and skating backwards).


We offer a very unique hybrid program using our synthetic ice surface and real ice surface. The size of our rink allows for a more engaging setting as it is a miniature size of an official rink, instead of an overwhelming ice surface.  Another unique feature is that because of the resistance of the synthetic ice, skaters can walk and stand with their skates on this surface without having the slipping away feeling.  This reduces the likelihood of falling and getting injured and provides the opportunity to build confidence from the very first step.  Our synthetic ice surface also allows caregivers to be on with their child without having to be on skates themselves. This program includes sessions on the synthetic ice to start learning the basics and creating the muscle memory before they transition to the real ice for the remaining sessions.  Starting on synthetic ice makes their first experience way more positive and sets them up for success!  

Please note that parents do not wear skates on the synthetic ice, they must wear indoor shoes.  Parents do not come on the real ice once we transition to that.

Full CSA approved hockey gear is recommended for the synthetic sessions but not required.  It is however required for the real ice sessions.

  • CSA approved helmet with full face mask
