The equipment is purchased through registration here and once registered, you will receive a voucher that you will take to the Perfect Edge store inside the KV Ice House in Brighton to get your equipment prior to the start of the session.
Sizes are available for most kids age 4 to 10 years old!!
RENTAL EQUIPMENT IS AVAILABLE ON A LIMITED BASIS & ONLY AVAILABLE THROUGH REGISTRATION FOR A $25 FEE (5 SETS AVAILABLE - FIRST COME FIRST SERVED)
One of the best way for kids to start playing is to borrow equipment from a sibling, neighbor, friend, or relative, it helps parents save money until they have to start buying new gear and it helps clear out someone else's storage space!!
Learn to play hockey participants must be able to skate, or at least be out on the ice independently without a pusher/assistance and they also must be able to stop in a controlled manner. Click here to find out about Learn to Skate.
Our Learn to Play sessions can have up to 40 kids; they work as one large group with all of the coaches help, or they break out into smaller groups with one or two coaches at each station. Our Director of Training kicks off and assists with the program but most of the coaches are Dads or Moms who have children participating.
Getting your child comfortable out on the ice, with all of the gear, and moving is the first, and most important, step. We keep the cost affordable (almost the cost of an open skate per session) because the program is mostly about just getting the kids out there and is loosely structured to give them freedom to play independently.
Hockey is a tough sport and repetitions are key to development. Every practice will work on basic skills - skating, stopping, falling, getting up, stick and puck handling, hand eye coordination, listening, and more.
We constantly evaluate players to determine who is ready to move to a team. This is offered only if spots are available and the skill level is appropriate.
Our programs are 99% volunteer based and are only a success because of the outstanding efforts of our volunteer coaches.
We are always looking for help on the ice for this program. Our Director of Training will assist the coaches for the first couple of sessions and check in regularly once the program is running. The more coaches we have, the more that can be accomplished and the better support the players will receive.
At minimum, our Learn to Play assistant coaches must be registered with USA Hockey as a volunteer, have completed Safesport Training and a background check.
