LEARN TO PLAY HOCKEY

Our Learn to Play program is for kids ages 3-12 that will provide a fun and memorable experience for them that starts a life long passion for the sport of hockey.  

In this program, over the course of the season, your children will work on learning to skate, how to stop, fall and get up, plus learn the basics of hockey and using a stick and puck while skating.   They are one big team with groups of kids working in stations eventually working up to playing in their first scrimmage game.   They will work on skills at their own pace in a fun, supportive and safe environment.  

All players must wear full hockey equipment to participate in this program. 

Due to Covid 19, we will no longer be offering rental starter hockey equipment.  Additional options are being sought after and will be posted when available. 


At this time, planning for our 2020-2021 Learn to Play program is underway.
WE ARE NO LONGER TAKING RESERVATIONS FOR THE FALL SESSION
Please check back in December for information about our Winter session
 
 We appreciate your patience as we work through challenging times to plan the best possible hockey experience for our youngest players. 



Helpful tips for Learn to Play Parents

All Learn to Play participants must wear full hockey equipment - see below for information on KVHA rental equipment.   
 
The link below will assist you with the equipment that your child will need.   http://newtohockey.com/hockey-equipment-buying-guide-for-kids/
 
Write the name of your child on a piece of hockey tape and place it on the front part of their helmet. This will help the coaches learn your child's name and get to know each of them during their sessions on the ice.

Hockey coloring pages and activities

 

From all over the internet, we put together a collection of coloring pages, mazes, word searches and more for your hockey player 


Coaches needed

Our programs are a success because of the outstanding efforts of our volunteers.   We are always looking for help on the ice for this program.  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 coaches must be registered with USA Hockey as a volunteer, have completed Safesport Training and a background check
