Learn to Play Hockey

In HYHA's Learn to Play Hockey program, participants will learn the fundamentals of skating and hockey necessary for developing into a hockey player, per the American Development Model (ADM) set forth by USA Hockey.

The program will introduce skaters to the basic skills of skating, puck control, passing and shooting. Participants learn through practice drills and informal scrimmages that are directed by USA Hockey certified instructors who are on the ice at all times. The goal of the program is to ensure the introduction to skating and hockey is a positive experience.
