Youth Learn to Play Hockey
The Comcast Community Ice Rink has developed a progressive Learn to Play Hockey program that is designed to provide skills instruction for children ages 5 through 14. This program has been designed as an introduction to hockey focusing on basic skills, with an emphasis on having FUN! Weekly clinics teach the fundamental skills of skating, puck handling, passing, shooting, and game situations providing the participant with the opportunity to develop confidence and a positive self-image while experiencing achievement throughout the program.
