The Printscape Arena youth learn to play hockey 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 Printscape Arena hockey staff, who is comprised of USA Hockey certified coaches with an extensive playing background.
Participants will build upon the individual skills learned in Hockey 101 (skating, shooting, stick handling), will learn more intermediate hockey specific individual skills (intermediate skating skills), all while being introduced to game rules, strategy, and team specific skills (positioning, offense, defense). The focus of the program is to create a fun atmosphere for all participants, so they continue to enjoy the game of ice hockey while continuing skill development.
Requirements: Completion of Hockey 101, USA Hockey player registration, and full hockey equipment. *No refunds will be issued, however credit vouchers can be given by Program Manager approval.
