Overview of the Salt Lake County Youth Hockey Learn to Play Hockey Program
Ice hockey is a very challenging sport to learn. Skating, the primary and most important skill required to play hockey takes great deal of time to master. This program teaches new players the basic skills needed to play in a hockey league with players that may have several years of hockey experience.
Learn to Play Hockey Program consists of 3 Courses
- Introduction to Hockey (October 2017)
- Level 1 (November-December 2017)
- Level 2 (January-March 2018)
Once your child has completed the 3 phases of Learn to Play Hockey, he/she will be ready to join Salt Lake County Youth Hockey. League play begins September.
We highly suggest that students enroll in Learn to Skate for Hockey along with Learn to Play Hockey. This increases the number of times the child will touch the ice on a weekly basis and also provide extra instruction. Each child is given a free public skate pass and they are highly encouraged to come skating to a public session once a week.
Registration open from 7/17/2017 to 10/23/2017
