pathway for all kids
Our Juniors program caters for all children under 16 at any skill level. If your child is just starting out, the IceArena runs a range of weekly trainings from basic skating skills to hockey skills during school terms. We have mapped out the pathway below based on your child's experience
I'VE ONLY JUST STARTED SKATING
I CAN SKATE AND STOP BUT HAVENT PLAYED ICE HOCKEY BEFORE
Our junior programs will teach you the necessary skills to enjoy ice hockey at each level. If this is your first time playing ice hockey, we recommend you enrol in the IceBlast program
IceBlast is a great inexpensive way to see if hockey is the sport for you. Ran during the school term over 6-10 weeks, all gear is supplied and the basics of skating and hockey are taught in a fun environment.
I CAN CONTROL THE PUCK AND MOVE AROUND THE ICE
Once you’re comfortable moving around the ice in all of your gear with a puck, you’re ready to play hockey.
Our junior program runs from April to September, training on Thursday nights and games on Sunday morning.
