Learn to Skate (LTS)

Ages 4-6

What to Expect

  • As the name implies, Learn to Skate is a program to help your child skate in a very fun and relaxed environment, that's optimal for learning. Your child will not be on a hockey team, that's later. The program is designed for children under the age of 6.
  • Socks are provided as well as jerseys with your child's name on it - a great keepsake!
  • Full equipment is required, including a neck guard. Label all equipment, especially gloves, sticks and helmets.
  • Parents are welcome in the dressing room at any time.
  • Players should arrive at the rink wearing most of their hockey gear (with the exception of skates, gloves, helmets). This makes it less chaotic in the dressing room as you as a parent only need to help your child with a few pieces of equipment.
  • As you enter the arena, look on the whiteboard/chalkboard or TV monitor for the LTS dressing room numbers.
  • Parents (or a designated representative) must always be at the rink to assist your child as required. Occasionally you may need to help adjust your child's equipment or take your child to the bathroom (it happens!).
  • Parents cannot be at the player's bench. If a child needs to leave the ice, the parent should meet the child at one of the exits on the ice.
  • The Learn to Skate program runs concurrently with our other divisions for the duration of the full hockey season from September to March.
  • Each LTS session is 50 minutes in length.
