This program is designed for beginner hockey players, ages 5 – 11 years old, who want to learn the fundamentals of hockey without making a full season commitment or purchasing full equipment. Children must complete a Hockey Prep or Basic 1 Learn to Skate program before enrolling into LTPH. The following skills will be taught on a regular basis: stick handling, puck control, passing, shooting, and skating skills. Full equipment is encouraged. Free rental hockey equipment is available and can be checked out per set. The format of the class is as follows: 40 minutes of instruction followed by 10 minutes of specific organized games to further develop the skills taught during class.
The following equipment is required:
Helmet with facemask
Hockey shin guards
We do not advise wearing equipment big enough “to grow into” – proper fitting equipment will ensure your child’s safety, comfort, and ease of movement on the ice.
Dates and Times: Sundays, Oct. 8 - Nov. 19 from 9 - 9:50 a.m.
We are currently not offering Stick n Puck at this time.
This program is open to all ages with the exception that all minors must be accompanied by an adult. This ice time can be used for either individual skill development or family fun hockey. Scrimmaging or team practice during this time is prohibited. Private instructors are also welcomed to join. Full equipment is not required; however, helmets must be always worn. Pucks will be provided by the KSU Ice Arena.
The KSU Ice Arena is home to the men’s KSU Club Hockey Division 1 and Division 3 teams. Check out their website at www.kentstatehockey.org for more information about the program, ticket sales, and prospective recruits.
