The objectives of Late Start To Hockey are centered around the fundamentals of ice skating. It’s important for beginner players at any age 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 onto recreational hockey. Our Late Start program will prepare new players ages 10 and older to have the skating and puck handling skills to matriculate to full ice team hockey the following year. Below are the objectives for Late Start To Hockey:
