Led by experienced coach TJ Elder, this year’s program will focus on both learn to skate and hockey 101. As each child progresses through the learn to skate program, we will introduce elements of hockey. These elements help teach the fundamentals of the sport and serve to improve balance and agility on skates. The required equipment for anyone on the ice is skates and a helmet. The WYC has a limited amount of loaner equipment available for the season, so check with us before buying on your own.
Learn to Skate
The WYC’s learn to skate program aims to help your child move from the boards to gliding around the ice. We have prime ice time this winter for beginners and more experienced skates to have their own space to learn to skate and stop, along with basic and more advanced techniques. For kids in grades K-6.
In hockey 101, kids will begin to explore skating with a stick and puck for the first time. TJ will introduce basic stick handling and hockey-related skating skills.
