Learn to Play Hockey Programs
The Iceplex youth learn to play hockey programs (Hockey 101 and the Initiation & Pony Programs) are designed around the guidelines of USA Hockey’s ADM model, which creates a fun, relaxed learning environment for participants to learn the fundamental skills of ice hockey. The non-competitive and positive atmosphere not only makes a child’s first experience with hockey positive, but also creates an environment that they can excel. Participants will not only learn the skills and game of ice hockey, but will also develop self-esteem and self-confidence. The program operates under the premise that if a player's introduction to the sport is positive, they will develop a lifetime love of the game.
Our hockey programs are taught by the Iceplex hockey staff, who is comprised of USA Hockey certified coaches with an extensive playing background.
We promote parent involvement in our hockey programs and encourage parents to assist by becoming a coach, manager or volunteer. Any parents with an interest in assisting should contact the program director for more information.
Our adult learn to play hockey program, the Never Ever League, is designed around one simple concept - create a positive and fun environment for adults to learn the game of ice hockey. The idea of getting on the ice for the first time as an adult can be very nerve racking, so we have removed that fear by creating a learning environment where all participants are starting from square one. Our instructional staff make every class fun and light hearted, so all participants are comfortable from the moment they walk through the Iceplex doors.
